I ordered 3 different colored books to display on some shelving in our guest bedroom. I thought I knew what colors I needed but I still sent in a picture or two of other items I was trying to coordinate the books with. The seller quickly sent me a picture of 3 different books and asked for my approval before sending. The books are really nice quality books. Excellent communication. Quick shipping. Reasonable pricing. I am thrilled with my purchase. Thank you so much!

I absolutely love my books! They are unique and beautiful. I told her what color I preferred and she was quick to give me multiple books to chose from. They came very fast and I will be ordering more!!

I appreciated that I was given the chance to see the books and “approve” before they were shipped. The books look great and are a perfect addition to my new home office book shelves!
