      Hi Darren.
      Emailed you some days ago regarding the "Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works Reprint + Luxury Tote Bag", they have not arrived yet.
      Could you please check the status of the order? A tracking number or an ETA would be great.
      Thanks

      Got mine in NZ the other day, great so far, small dent in one corner but otherwise excellent quality :)

    31. Benjamin Turner on May 25, 2017

      @Darren I'll send you an email but by no means do I blame you guys. The handling of the products you can't account for sadly as it's out of your hands.
      As I said the product is amazing and now I have jealous mates that will order a copy! Just sad to see something so good suffering silently.

    35. Shazz / TRSi on May 25, 2017

      Got mine too three days ago... Whoosh ! From the corner protectors to each page, I did not expect such quality. Little treasure !
      Thanks again.

    36. jonathan on May 25, 2017

      Got mine too, amazing book. To reiterate...corner guards great, still got slight ding on the front. Like the others, I can live with it. But great work on the book it was everything I hoped and more.

      Received my copy here in the States yesterday. Absolutely lovely book from the contents to the materials. Love the corner guards more that you realize. I did get a slight dent in the lower-front spine just above the corner guard, but I can live with it. Thanks so much for reprinting this wonderful book!

      Darren Wall: In the UK and the book still isn't here.

    39. Benjamin Turner on May 24, 2017

      I want to say though the print quality and images are beautiful. Really pleased I backed just sad it didn't make it unscathed and the corner protectors great idea. Maybe thicker cardboard or a proper box would be more appropriate.

    40. Benjamin Turner on May 24, 2017

      Got mine today. Was very excited to get home and open. Once I saw the package I was disappointed. Personal experiences tell me this packaging for books always fails.
      My book has a sizeable dent in the spine of it. Quite sad really.

      Vertti: I'm sorry you're waiting so long for this! Likewise, if you could drop us a line at orders@readonlymemory.vg with your shipping details, we'll happily look into it for you.

      Though readonlymemory.vg says 5 to 13 working days and it has been 13 days now I assume that my book is still on the way based on people not getting the book yet or have got it yesterday. I'm sure it's worth the wait! :)

    45. J M Loma on May 24, 2017

      You all make me feel real jealous..still no sign of my copy here in Spain. Pretty sure the wait will be worth it.

      reading other notes here my bookmark was in between the cardboard mailer and the bubble wrap, i guess thats why it was damaged, probably added as an after thought, have a look that it did not fall out when you pulled out the book from the mailer

      Matthew Aldridge on May 23, 2017

      got my book today (In Australia) great book but the book has a big dent in the rear cover on the page edge and the bookmark was folded around the book when pack so completely creased up and damaged :( I can see the corner covers where great but the outside packaging was thin cardboard and felt more bubble wrap should have been used to protect the book in that case, I do order alot of books from overseas and locally via the post and seldom have an issue but I must say tougher external packaging is normally present (the cardboard is thicker).....in short love the book disappointed with the condition and packaging used.
