Have a question?
Ah, OK. I didn't look back far enough to see that. I just knew there were comments about the other campaign here, so I was kind of trying to help clarify which one it was.
@James M.: thanks for replying to Ian’s inquiry. He’s an international backer whom we’ve had trouble getting books to.
@Ian: new books finally went out today. Thanks for your immense patience with delay on this print.
@Ian: Holiday books? Contact Mouse Books. Regular books from the other Kickstarter? They're shipping now and should arrive soon.
Still no sign of books- what do we do next?
Ok. No problem. My wife travels for work and she loves them!! Just missed not having new ones. If they are on the way, all is good.
FWIW, IMO with a quarterly shipment, you're not late until the quarter is over. Sure, it's better if it arrives at the start of the quarter, but if it comes within the three month time frame, I'd still count it as on time.
@ Mark - New books at the printer now. That is not BS - we are in communications daily reviewing proofs and getting the books to press ASAP. We know we are past due and DEEPLY appreciate your patience.
Hi mouse books. Haven’t received a mouse book in a while. Got the first few just fine (I have the year subscription). Any issues on your end?
@ Ian - first one got lost by USPS, but we dropped the ball on the follow-up. We’ll make it right. Will send you a PM now.
Hi, still no sign of the books. I can understand the first delivery going missing but for two to disappear leaves me a little concerned (not to say confused)! I’m not sure what can be done - I was very much looking forward to the books, the second set were a present for someone who travels a lot, not sure what we can do?
Thank you, will let you know when they arrive
@ Ian - Thanks for your note. I looked up you order and it appears we gave it to the post office Feb 10 but then the trail goes dark. We'll send a replacement right away!
My books not arrived yet, is there a shipping problem?
These books are great. I lent a couple to my Mother (a retired high school English teacher) on a recent trip she & my sister took to India. Perfect for entertainment while traveling light.
Thanks so much!
Got the second deliver of my subscription today. I’m so very happy with these books! Thank you.
@ Pam - All straight. Thanks for working with us on getting sub status updated :)
@ Kaja - Thanks for heads-up. Not sure what happened...Got new books out to you today. Snuck a bonus in there ;)
Hi! Could you please check the status of my shipment? Have totally forgot about it, but no books have made their way to Norway yet :/
I was curious as to when those of us who selected a subscription will see the start of them? I assumed from your Instagram post that they were coming, but nothing ever arrived for me.
@ Sony - We'll research your order and direct message you right away. Thanks for letting us know.
Hi, I am yet to receive my books. Whom do I contact?
Wonderful books, love the staples! I am giving them ALL away so I had to order more.
I was just skimming over the books, mainly to get the titles of the individual Russian Christmas stories*, and it appears that the questions in the back are the same for all three books. Was that done on purpose? I was expecting each text to have its own set of questions. I realize that takes extra time and effort to develop questions for every single book though. Having one set of questions for a given theme / three-pack of books is a reasonable alternative, makes sense, and maybe that's a good way to go if these types of questions will appear in future books. I would prefer not to see the exact same set of questions in every book though -- I think readers will start to ignore them if that's the case.
* The first story's title doesn't seem to be given, but a web search for some of the text turned it up quickly enough: Papa Panov's Special Christmas.
Received mine today, you guys did great:)
My books are taking slightly longer to arrive than I would have expected for USPS first-class mail, but it's not a big deal. I'll still get them before Christmas, as promised here. It'll just take another day or two for reasons I don't quite understand. *shrug*
Also, this has got to be the fastest Kickstarter fulfillment of physical rewards I've seen -- under 1 week! Thanks to Mouse Books for getting a head start on things during the campaign to ensure that we could get our rewards in time for the holiday. :)
Already started reading The Gift of the Magi. Can’t wait to read the rest!! Thanks again :)
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Books arrived in Los Angeles yesterday and they look great. Can’t wait to gift them out. First Class Mail was light years faster than Media Mail. Cheers!
@ Mark - KS support is pretty solid.
@ Mike - We are so happy with these books. eDOC is an outstanding partner for us. The copper staples are my favorite detail.
Thank you! I received my books in the mail yesterday!!! I can't believe how quickly they arrived. They are beautiful and will be enjoyed.
Issue resolved. Thanks!
@ Mark - We don't handle any transactions; thats all kickstarter. I think you should email their support team. Generally, I've found them very good.
Hey guys. I’m new to Mouse Books and can’t wait to get them. However, I backed the yearly reward and my CC was charged $61.00, $20.00 and $35.00. Not sure what happened but can you look into it? I believe I should have only been charged $61.00 for the yearly subscription unless I misunderstood. If so, please clarify. Thanks!!
It looks like these are on their way! � I see a tracking number in my USPS account for a package coming from Illinois, which I'm assuming is this one. The estimated delivery is the 21st, so they should arrive before Christmas add promised. This may be the fastest delivery of physical rewards I've seen, within a week of the campaign ending!
Congratulations Mouse Books! The books do look beautiful.
another happy day in Kickstarter/book land. Now onto the next Mouse Books campaign.....!�
Congratulations on another successful campaign! Looking forward to more of your quality products <3
Since I won't be available at the time this closes, I'll send an early congratulations on a successful campaign! :)
A bit of an aside, and I know you're busy with this campaign right now, but have you given any thought to offering a storage solution for our growing Mouse Books collections?
So many exclamation points! I'm just happy to back a great thing again.
@ Minty - thank YOU!
Congrats on being funded. I can’t wait to start reading the new set!!
Also, thanks for the sweet message! :)
Looking forward to those Holiday books!
Congratulations Mouse Books!
Yay -- fully funded! I knew we were going to get there sooner or later. I'm glad we're finally there.
@ MAYBELINE - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats on funding! I knew I was waiting so long to pledge for a reason. I upped it to get over that bump.
My wife had her old friends over for the weekend and I stayed in a hotel. When I came home they were all excited about Mouse Books and wanted to know more.
Yes, only ~$125 to go now. I'm tweeting again. :D
Homestretch! Go Mouse Books!
