    While I appreciate that the shipping folks put the book in a padded flat-rate envelope and also put the book inside a Tyvek priority envelope inside the padded envelope, it wasn't enough to prevent damage in this instance. (I assume there is no recourse for this sort of thing, as the damage isn't severe enough to make the book unreadable, just unattractive to someone as picky as I am...? )

    Myself, whenever I ship anything like this out in a padded envelope, I put some kind of reinforcement material inside the envelope to give it added rigidity/support. I might suggest in future that the packing people use a cardboard flat-rate envelope inside the padded envelope instead of the Tyvek one, seeing as how they're already taking the time to put one envelope inside the other, and the Post Office provides them free of charge...

    I got the EXACT same problem when mine arrived today. The spine has a gigantic 2 inch dent on both sides. even though it's fresh off the shelf, the condition immediately turns from "like new" to "acceptable"... I really don't like that.

    Edit: Here are a couple of pics showing the problem. If that's not okay, please just delete the pics and not the whole post.

    Note that in addition to the big dent, there are numerous smaller dents along the spine.

    Yes, I really quoted myself and put it in my signature. You can't honestly say you never thought something you said was so awesome you wanted to make it into a quote and put it in your signature, can you?

    Okay, maybe you can.


    Why did I buy Teleporking.com? I have no idea. Am I rich yet?
