We live in a very consumer-oriented time. If you want to shop you have thousands and thousands of online-shops to choose from and can dress complete, furniture your home and buy even food without leaving your living room. I´m not such a hardcore online shopper but i like to buy books from amazon.com. They have nearly everything you ever want and deliver quite fast. And there is the amazon marketplace where you can buy books for 0,5 € - great!!! However the post service this is always an antventure and i tell you why. Last time i ordered a very specific book at amazon and it whas shipped from the UK. No problem so far. But when i retrieved my packet fom my mail-box i saw that the envelope was open. Someone had opened my envelope and then delivered it to me - book still in there. That made my imagination make loopings. Was the packed suspicious so the police or the post security opened it to check on it? Or - and this is the idea i liked most - a bored employeé of the post office opened my envelope to nick my books. But oh how was this little thief dissapointed when he/she got the book out. Was the youngster thinking there was a bestseller in it? Whatever he or she expected it wasn´t an polical history book by C. R. Pennell: Morocco from empire to independence. HAHAHA what a dissapointment to you! I hope it was likethis but it´s more likely that the security just checked books fom UK in case of rated stuff.
