Sweet Book Surprise!
I ordered an old copy of Agatha Christie's The Hollow on Paperbackswap. The gentleman who was to send it messaged me and said you realize this is a copy from 1968 and the cover has some bumps and scraps and the pages are yellowed, but the binding is relatively tight and the printing very clean. Did I still want it. Of course I told him yes as long as the pages are intact I love old books. Today I got a package from him with The Hollow and all these!
He enclosed a note telling me because I was so gracious about receiving an old book, he sent me a few more. Wasn't that sweet? Made my day!
