Comment: I'm very sorry to give you a 1, but I never got the swap, although here it says you sent it on January 18!! This was 2 months ago. I sent you a message asking if something was wrong, and you never replied it. So, I have no other choice. I will change my rating if I get the book.

Comment: I'm sorry to have to do this but the swap was due to be mailed by April 26. There was no communication about being late though it wasn't marked sent till April 28. May 14 I let you know it hadn't been received and May 15 you said you would resend. It is now over two weeks later and no socks have been received. Of course, I will change the rating when something arrives.
