When we travel here in the U.S. or abroad we are always pleased when we encounter a town or village that still supports an independent bookstore. The few that remain have become the intellectual nexus of their neighborhoods, where curious souls gather to wander the aisles during the day or listen to enlightening presentations by night.
But for most of us, the ambiance of "Ye Old Bookshop" is all but a thing of the past. This leaves book lovers only the following options:
•The large brick and mortar megastore that has all but crushed any independent competition
Fortunately now in the online world, there are many small retail bookshops that have found a platform from which they can still engage in their passion and serve their customers. Amazon is certainly the largest and most visited of these.
But here's the rub:
How can you know whether a book you've purchased from the internet will really be in the condition stated on the page?
By checking the feedback from previous customers. Were their expectations met or even exceeded? If so, you too can have confidence in your purchase. That is why we at Enlightened Paths bookstore are proud of the work we put into maintaining our high customer satisfaction rating.
You can rely on the fact that we buy only from private collections, exclusively selecting the highest quality editions. We lovingly clean and care for the books that pass through our hands, then accurately rate their condition. Finally, we place them in their own sealed pouch and send them to an Amazon warehouse near you, where they await your order.
And if you're an Amazon Prime member, you'll automatically
receive FREE 2 day shipping on any orders over $25.
If you're a reader and or a collector seeking great prices on an impressive selection of high quality, new and pre-owned books, we invite you to browse the virtual aisles of our store:
And remember... books still make a great gift!
