Saturday SHOUT-OUT

This week I want to give a big SHOUT-OUT and a sincere thank-you to publisher Wordsworth Editions. About a month ago, I received a copy of The Great Gatsby from an online retailer. I’m sure you remember my fabulous review (hardy, har, har) Anyway, when I received the book, it appeared to be in good condition, but as I was finishing reading it,several pages at the back of the book fell out. See?

I immediately contacted the publisher, the above mentioned Wordsworth Editions, and asked them whom I should contact for a replacement copy. Within hours, and without the slightest hassle, I received an email from Derek Wright telling me they would be happy to send me a replacement. I sent Derek my address and that was that. Last week my new copy arrived brand new and completely unscathed.

I was impressed with the prompt response to my inquiry and the hassle-free manner with which it was dealt. I didn’t even have to provide the publisher with a proof-of-purchase. I was taken at my word. Thank you again Derek and thank-you Wordsworth Editions!!

About Robbie

Hi there, my name is Robbie Burns (no,really, that’s my name…hold the haggis jokes please) and I would like to welcome you to the Pink Sheep Cafe. I started this blog as a means of discussing books and all things literary in light of my perpetual isolation. At the time I began writing, I was living in Split, Croatia. There wasn’t much here in the way of English book clubs and I couldn’t work, so I badly needed something to help me bide my time. My partner and I have since left Croatia and returned to Canada to live in Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. When we first moved back here, my blog writing sort of fell by the wayside, but now I seem to be back on track. I try to read and review a little bit of everything here; I think everyone can find something to their liking here. I find myself tending more towards more literary reads these days, but I also enjoy a lot of YA and children’s fiction. One of my ongoing goals is to work my way through all of the Nobel Laureates. My two most favorite authors are Timothy Findley and Halldor Laxness.
