A sweet apology from FedEx

So, FedEx screwed up, really quite impressively. To their credit, someone got in touch with me via email within a few days of me posting that, to apologise and ask for the specifics so they could get it dealt with. I've been a bit busy this week, so I've not had a chance to reply to them yet. In the meantime, my complaint letter must have winged its way to someone, as yesterday I got an email, confirming the information I'd asked for, and apologising for the bad service. Excellent: I'd got what I asked for, and that was an end to the issue.

But this afternoon, a package arrived for me. A big, heavy package from FedEx. I went off to collect it, with no idea why they were still contacting me: as far as I was concerned, the matter was closed.

But the label on the box gave a clue as to why it was there:

Slightly concerning that this is needed often enough to be a proper label...

And the contents gave even more of a clue: an apology note, and lots of delicious goodies!


Strawberry and cream cookies, shortbread, jams and marmalades, and dinky jars of classic sweets, yay!

OK: so they got things wrong. A lot. And drove me utterly up the wall for months. But once my complaint actually made it to the attention of someone with some customer service skills, they did their best to fix it. They deserve some credit for that.

So, FedEx, thanks for sweetening my day. Just make sure you keep an eye on your invoicing department in future?

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour!
