The version of the MLB News that you see on the website reflects the numerous corrections identified by our bevy of sharp-eyed volunteer proofreaders. Our thanks to their efforts for improving the accuracy of the news. Naturally, any errors remaining are entirely the responsibility of the management.
Why not check out what our customers are reading in our January Best Sellers. Our Best Seller lists are a great place to find new authors for every taste.
The security of customers shopping on our website is important to us and as a result we have made a few significant changes.
First, we are discontinuing the payment option for Credit Card On File. We realize that this is a convenience for many regular customers but it creates an opportunity for potential problems and our credit card processors have requested that this practice be discontinued--not only by us but by all merchants. We regret the inconvenience but had no choice.
Secondly, for Visa card holders we've added a requirement for the CVV2 or Credit Card Verification number to be entered along with card number and expiration date. This is the 3 digit number on the back of your card, usually found by the signature line and often preceeded by the last four digits of the card number. This is a security device to ensure that the person making the purchse is in possesion of the actual card.
We hope that these changes, which ultimately are for the benefit of our customers, will not prove troublesome to you.
If you have any questions, please email us or give us a call at 888-800-6078.
The last of the New Arrivals for February are still coming in. We've got new titles from Jacqueline Winspear, Kerry Greenwood, April Smithand, William Lashner, Linda Fairstein, Alex Berenson and many others.
So far as British New Arrivals are concerned, we've gotten a nice-sized order of older titles, including many Patricia Wentworth titles, with more on the way. We also received Death Under the Dryer by Simon Brett. This is the eighth in a delightful, comic series set in a small seaside town called Fethering. This book was never published in the US and we also have the earlier books in the series which are now out of print here.
See New Arrivals for the complete list.
Here's what you can find at www.mysterylovers.com:
