OT: Interweave Press Hurt Book Sale follow-up
Has anyone received their books yet? I was just wondering how long it usually takes to get them. Ya know, kind of anxious to look at all the patterns and get knitting!

I have not yet received my "hurt" books (it's now 3 weeks since I made the purchase) and wonder if they are being shipped surface mail? If that's the case, it will be WEEKS before they arrive here in Australia... :-( I'd also be interested in hearing when anyone else receives their orders as this is the first time I've purchased any books from Interweave Press's hurt book sale.

Hi Jill,

I just got my books yesterday--they came via FedEx. I had sent an e-mail to the company, and they told me to allow at least 3 weeks before I saw them. Hopefully you'll get yours soon! And, in my opinion, there's nothing "hurt" about them--mine were all fine, so I believe we got some great deals!

Hope you get yours soon--if you don't get them by the end of the week, I would say to at least send them an e-mail and they should respond.

Got them yesterday--FedX as well. No HURT in mine either--but I didn't get the main one I wanted -- they said it was already gone. Oh well!

I didn't take advantage of this sale but i did the last one. I have actually put more hurt on m books than there was on the ones I got. There were little scuffs but nothing that they couldn't have gotten in shipping.

one of them gave me an ugly paper cut the other day though!

I got mine at least a week ago. One cover had a dent, but the other 3 were fine, just shelf worn. Maybe one slightly torn corner? One was a return from a shop (partial sticker still on it), but the others were new.

Mine shipped the day I paid 7/26.

I guess that I was lucky. I got mine in about a week. They are in perfect condition.
