Customer Feedback

“I also want to send a sincere thank you to Jim. I was not here on a very hot day for a book delivery. The boxes were stacked neatly and I could even walk into my office! A huge THANK YOU to Jim. I know this would not be the case for any other vendor. We are proud to support an independent book dealer.”
~Annie, Southwest Youth and Family Services, Seattle

“You are my hero! And the hero of a few teachers around here.
