A Note on e-Commerce
I try to buy my books locally, but must admit the service from Amazon is remarkable. 20 hours after ordering it, I just received Art and Text in Byzantine Culture edited by Liz James (Cambridge University Press, 2007). Obviously, this is not a book that my local bookstore would have in stock. To have such an obscurity delivered so quickly is amazing.
I am under a bit of time pressure, and the service is appreciated.
