I've really been struggling recently with getting books over seas. Blackwells, Amazon, AwesomeBooks and even Grandeagle Retail on ebay have been giving me a ton of problems. Usually in the way that books are very under-packaged and arrive damaged, dented, or split. So far everyone's Customer Service has been great, but I'd love to be able to order books without having to engage with customer service (either accepting partial refunds or mailing things back for full refunds) as it adds so much time to getting a replacement.

1. Are there any other online retail distributors, or ebay sellers that you all recommend I try?

2. Does anyone else regularly have issues with Blackwells or Awesomebooks?
