Mine came just minutes after I wrote the last note! Maybe they are listening....... Thankfully it didn't get wet as I spied his van and raced over in the tractor to get him! The books are however somewhere between slightly and badly dinged at the top of the spine. Pretty annoying. I don't think it's anything to do with the delivery guys I think they are badly packed in a box with no cushioning and far to tight. Mine wasn't one of the signed copies either gggrrrr.
