I am all in favour of packing books well when they go in the post, especially if they are travelling over an ocean (I have experience -- too much experience -- of things getting lost without trace on their way from the US to me).

I am not in favour of receing books in packaging tht I am personally physically unable to open. I do not own an industrial quality staple-remover, not the sort of scissors that can cut through really thick cardboard.

I'd be tempted to send the damned thing back except I really want the book inside....

Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Sympathetic nod. I usually end up peeling the cardboard off in layers.

As for blister packs...!
