  I just opened a WL book and I'm so happy I had to come here and brag on it!  This is the 2nd go round with this book, the last one went lost so I was pretty disappointed.  But I just got it in, and it got here in 3 days, the packaging was terrific AND....the book is in PRISTINE condition! Like it was never read at all!

 There are so many rants and bummed out members when they get a book that is unpostable or have a bad experience with another member, I wanted to remind you all that there are great swappers out there!!   I left him a big thank you PM and told him if we had feedback, he'd get 10 stars from me :)   Can't wait to get on the couch this upcoming rainy weekend and read my new book!

I love gettting any book that is in PBS condition - but one like you described is wonderful.  I've gotten a few like that, too.  I always PM them with big thanks and I tell them why.  I've had a few senders PM me back saying that if I liked that packaging so well they'd keep it up!  And that's what I'm hoping for!  PBS book in great packaging!  Can't get any better than that!

I received what looks like a new book yesterday too.  It was mailed on February 23 and arrived on the 26th from Tennessee!  A big thanks to my sender too.

Just have to add that I received a book today, March 4 that was mailed March 2 from Florida and I live in MIchigan.  I've had letters to Florida take longer than that!  The book was in great shape too!

Me too! The book was in like new condition and had only just been released. I was thrilled enough to get the wish answered so soon and then to get such a beautiful copy gave my day just a little more happiness. = )

Yep, me too.

Mailed on the 24th, arrived today - 2 books.  Book one - barely worn.  Book two  (the obligatory check out the bookshelf and see if there is anything else I want book) could be brand new. 

Great transaction!  Happy day

95% of the books I have gotten from PBS have been great, and many have been loike new.  Glad to hear that others are having positive swaps also!

I received one yesterday that had been on my WL for nearly two years.  It looks brand spanking new!  I'm thrilled!

Yay for a great book in super condition!

Since i complained about my two bad experiences in a row... i have had two perfect almost-new books come to me (and one doesn't even look like human hands have ever come near it - lol). Believe me i do not take it for granted, and i thank them profusely for them! There for a month or two i was dreading getting a book, and i am back to being a very pleased PBS'er, lol.
