A Request that Came in the Nick of Time.13 June 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Normally, I prefer to buy books here through Amazon but as of the beginning of last semester at California Sate University Chico, I had to rent this Anthology so as to avoid buying it brand new. Unfortunately due to an unintentional mishap the copy I had of this book received water damage and since I could not return the copy I had to Chico's book store, it is a miracle that I got a second copy of this book in the nick of time and for less than I paid to rent this Anthology collection not to mention the brand new price at the Wild Cat Book store at Chico State which would of been more than double what I paid for this single copy; a copy that arrived in what I would like call "immaculate" condition.
