Without a doubt the best service I've ever experienced from a seller on Amazon. The item shipped within a couple of hours, arrived in the span of a single weekend (despite being normal cheap shipping) and was very well packaged to protect it in transit. All in all, prompt AF.

Six Star Service. My paperback is in marvelous condition, more like "New" than "Like New," and it was shipped promptly. As for the packaging: it was so careful I'm tempted to believe you're as obsessive compulsive as I. Thank you.

Thank you for the book being in the precise condition you described. It came Xmas Eve and was presented as a thank you last night to our adult daughter. We appreciate doing business with you!

The book I ordered was released in 1991 and arrived in "new" condition just as advertised. Shipped across the country in a timely fashion and a very reasonable price. My thanks to Avol's.

Book purchased at great price and arrived in fantastic shape. Honest seller listing accurately described items. Couldn't be more pleased!

Zachary Chapman @ Amazon


Kevin J. McFarland @ Amazon

The US Postal Service delayed delivery, but the seller was very helpful and quick to reply to my problem — not the seller's fault! A book described as 'fine' was in fact in 'excellent' condition and well packaged. Wonderful service.

Robert G. Sullivan @ Amazon

Wonderful Service! Great Price, excellent condition, delivered three days within order date! Thank you so much!

Crystal Manuel @ Amazon

This book is priceless to me, as I knew both Jon Anderson and Paul Zimmer. Just precious to have in hand. Thank you for preserving it.

Sandra McPherson @ Amazon

Wow! The book was in excellent used condition (like new, if you ask me!). The book was also placed in a cardboard package, wrapped in newspaper, and wrapped in a plastic bag (nearest the book). I doubt even throwing the package in the water would've damaged the book! Thank you so much! Would buy from again in two shakes of a heartbeat!

Brooke Salzman @ Amazon

Excellent seller. Book arrived in a few days, securely wrapped using recycled materials. Book condition listed as Very Good; in fact, it is better than I expected. Very happy.

Shelley Bannister @ Amazon

As described (used good/ex library) but actually even better than expected! thanks for on time early delivery!

Desert Books @ Amazon

The book I received was in better condition than I imagined when ordering...I wrote to Avol's Books before ordering, to be assured about the strictness of their book-grading (fine, near new, new, etc.) and to ask about their return policy if I was not satisfied after the book's arrived...I am very happy, very satisfied...I wish I knew about Avol's before...I hope to order from them again....

Exceptional transaction. Five years ago I think online descriptions were more accurate; you could trust them to be more precise than I've experienced lately. This seller is impeccable. Did not overstate, as so many seem to. Shipping was brisk as well, and packaging uncommonly conscientious. This is of course just how a sale ought to be, yet rarely is: I'd give six stars if I could.

I give this seller a 10+. The book was in excellent condition, the mylar cover was an additional bonus. It looks like it just came off the press. Delivery was exceptional-just 4 days. Packaging was done with extreme care to prevent damage during shipment. I would not hesitate to order from this seller in the future. WELL DONE Avols!!

Nick D. Swanstrom: Order arrived early, 17 Jan 2012. What an utterly professional job, from accurately describing the 4 volumes that comprise this set to the exceptionally diligent wrapping and packaging job!

Dear Ron;

I received this book today - much sooner than I would have thought, thanks so much for your speedy shipping! It survived its journey to Canada quite handily; indeed, the overall condition is very nice, just as your description led me to expect. Your outstanding service is appreciated, sir.

This item exceeded all expectations I could have imagined. It came instantly but most of all this book was brand new with a new cover on it (not from a library but a wrap that a library book would have). It was perfect and gorgeous, and just wish all of my books were wrapped this pretty. GREAT SERVICE!!! the best I have ever gotten on amazon...thank you!
