    Definitely thanks for the tip Ned! I just placed an order for 4 books. I could have easily ordered 3 or 4 more but felt that it being just one day after Christmas, some restraint was in order.

    fox chapel didnt send me any except one of the books I ordered, with 3.5o shipping charge and managed to put their catalog inside my shipping envelope and charge me more than I would have paid for shipping the one book they sent.

    Yeah, they removed a lot of them from my order as well.

    Bad business practice, that.

    I guess I was lucky because I received the four books I ordered and all was well.

    I sure hope I don't get stuck like that I'll be very unhappy indeed, I kept adding books until the price of shipping jumped to the next level, took a book out and the shipping went back to where it was, but if I ordered 6 books and spent $46 and $43 for shipping I'm happy, but if they send me only 3 books for say $25 and I spent $43 on shipping, I'm going to be very unhappy to say the least.......... no shipping confirmation yet either

    I just wanted to add, that my books came today, all six in fine condition, I could barely tell they were scratch and dent books, had to look to find any of either.

    Worked out great for me, sorry some of you guys had trouble.

    Cheers!
