Re: RARA-AVIS: Tips on NOT schleping....

from an independent mystery book store (and I won't list any here for
space conservation, if you want a list e-mail me privately), you simply
tell them you want them sent and they do that wrapping for you
I schlep for the simple reason that US delivery is not very good nor
dependable. It may never reach you and ifyou have 1st editions, you may
prefer to schlep. We always carry an empty suitcase to Bouchercon; I
wouldn't trust my 1st edition Ian Rankin's Hanging Garden to any service
but my own hands
