"I just wanted to inform you that the Suehiro Maruo book landed (thanks to your proper and fantastic packaging) safely at my doorsteps yesterday."
"I was shocked when I received my package - it's pretty clear sufficient time and effort was put into it. My experience with buying anything online has been less than stellar - particular Amazon, so it was a delight to see the amount of time you put into making sure my book was not damaged. Also, I thought the handwritten note was cute! Anyway, thank you and I'm sure to come back for more."

"Just a quick note to say everything arrived safely, which is surprising, because the postman pushed the bundle so hard through the letterbox that he entirely sheared off the right hand side off the package. Why he didn't just ring the bell and let me buzz him in I'll never know. ... Anyway, all's well. You have some joyful things and I'll be back when I've topped up my coffers."
