Well, I give this one credit for trying to protect a hardcover (successfully) but egad:
Inside, a brown paper bag, also folded and securely taped with 2″ tape all over.
Inside, a cardboard Priority envelope (unused – and we wonder at PO rising costs), sealed, folded, and taped.
Inside, a brown paper bag, folded, taped.
[NB: I am NOT making this up!!]
Inside, ANOTHER (unused) Priority envelope, sealed, folded, taped.
Inside, yet another brown paper bag, folded taped.
I am pleased to report that the book was unsuccessful at breaking out of the packaging.
Now….how long did it take to do this? What sort of paper-bag storage (not to mention collecting) did this require? (Bags all the same size and style – hmmmm. Considering the “theft” of the Priority envelopes, I have to wonder how they came by these.)
