PeggyS, that is wonderful news about the "M" bag. I will check on this right away. We are trying to restrict ourselves about what we ship from Mass. to Ajijic, as the cost is very high. Thus, we are getting rid of lots of books, but it would be nice to bring our favorites, and I was concerned about the cost of bringing even one box of large art, gardening, and history books. The "M" bag would be perfect, as we really have nothing irreplaceable to lose if the books never arrive, but it would be great if they do. Would you tell me roughly how long it took and what it cost, just out of curiosity?
And thanks for the specific info on Powells. I have become emotionally dependent on getting books from Amazon.com, where I can be assured of finding anything I want.
Does anyone go to bookstores in Guad? I understand there are some goos used bookstores. In Ajijic, I noted the small bookstore in the basement of the building near El Torrito had bestsellers, but they were about twice the full retail U.S. cost. I also noted that there is at least one book swap in operation.
Of course, without being snowed in during the winter, we may do less reading and need fewer books than in years past!
