Boxes of Books

You just never know when the book or books you've had sitting in a box at the back of the shop will suddenly "take off".

A customer came in yesterday and asked about some maritime journals. He'd recently been able to obtain 2 of the set and asked if he could put on order the balance, imagining that it would either take a long while to get them from overseas, or even that they would be scarce to find anywhere!

Imagine his surprise (and Meryll's) when he confirmed to her the author and the title of the series.  For Meryll had only to pop out of the back of the shop, pick up a box and bring it through to the surprised customer.   He was thrilled, because he was able to complete his set of 27 books all in one visit.

You just never know what you'll find in a box of books!
