    Return was difficult/Book is terrific

    My daughter loves the book so much, she purchased another one in the series. However, when I purchased this for Christmas, I learned Grandma had already purchased the same book for her already.

    After receiving an email telling me the shipment was delayed, offering me a link to cancel the order, I selected the link to do so; however, I received what appeared to be an auto-generated msg telling me oops, I could not cancel as it was already in process.

    A day after ... I received another email apologizing for the delay in shipping and the book might arrive by Christmas, so I contacted B&N Customer Service phone line to return the book.

    Finally, we arrived at the conclusion, I could return at the local store, but to get credit for the shipping, I had to call Customer Service again after the book was returned.

    Bottom line ... daughter is happy with book from Grandma, I received credit for book and shipping after two emails, two phone calls and a trip to the local store, which I felt was a bit much just to return a book, which was offered to cancel via email but rejected when attempted to do so.

    Oh well, not going to stop me from returning to B&N.

    A reviewer

    The PostSecret books are a refreshing reminder of the commonality of people in the world. Our mistakes, wishes, and struggles. In a world that is so media-obessed, it is nice to give voice to 'all the other people.' While reading the secrets, you can't help connect to those you share with others, and reflect on what you would write if you had to. Well done Mr. Warren!
