The Friday Project Rocks

I recently expressed my desire to read In Search Of Adam – something nearly impossible due to my geographical location. Shipping a book over from the UK just doesn’t bode well for me … in both time, effort and cost.

A few hours after I posted up that wish Clare from The Friday Project contacted me. I was pleasantly surprised … and intrigued.clare_comment

And so I fired off an email to her – hoping that she could address my doubts about ordering In Search Of Adam from so far away a place. I have to admit – this quick support quite impressed me, and it wasn’t long before I received another email.

Dear Eli

re. ‘In Search of Adam’

We would be able to ship a copy over, however we would have to charge £2.50 extra for shipping, so the total price would be £14.49. Please let me know if you’d like to order a copy

Best wishes

Hold on a sec, though … The Friday Project replied and connected with me – one prospective buyer interested in one of their blooks. Where on the internet can you get this kind of customer service?

The Friday Project rocks … and I am now a staunch supporter of everything they do. If you’re living in the UK get your grubby paws on one of their books right away – shame on you if you don’t!

    Thanks Eli, I’m still thinking on it, but it does seem a bit tricky. Still, ISoA is *definitely* worth the wait!

    Thank you, Clare – you took the time to respond to my request and that’s priceless in my book.

    I’ll wait. No matter how long it takes I will eventually read ISoA.

    Oh gosh, ming. But Malaysia … that’s kind of a looong stretch, isn’t it?

    Don’t worry. My persistence is not to be underestimated! *wiggles eyebrows*
