We are certifiable bookaholics who can't walk past a used book or antique store without going in to enjoy the smell of old books. I've traveled to most of the lower 48 states searching out interesting titles, and it's always a pleasure to see a special volume find a good home. I take extra care in packing all books, to the extent of shrink wrapping to help prevent damage in transit - this after a mail carrier left one of our packages in the rain on a doorstep a couple of years back.
