This isn't a good sign that the only reviews for this seller are because of lack of fulfillment for orders. Same thing happened to me too. It's unfortunate that a buyer goes through effort of finding the book they want only to find out the seller didn't take the time to update his/her inventory. Sad!Was this review helpful?
