    Fine by me. This is great news and it's even out early after being sooo late to get to this point.

With all the theft that had been happening lately, we felt this was a step to try and help make sure packages were not stolen, but we also recognize that some people live in areas where this is not a problem, so started adding Signature Confirmation in an effort to help combat this growing (in our area for sure) problem

    I feel like there is a Florida Man joke to be made here...

    In all seriousness though, I consider the extra shipping charges to be well justified with the exceptional packaging and gift wrapping that Camelot does!

My wife has been home as of late so I haven’t had to worry about it, which is nice, but it also means I can’t slip a package past her.

    Do they require someone to sign for all of their orders??? Damn. I had a few books I was getting ready to order, but the odds of anyone being home to sign for a package are slim.....Crap.

    Shipping through them for a single book is $10 and like $1.50 for each additional book. This is partly due to mandatory Signature Confirmation that was implemented by them a while back. I haven't really kept up with shipping from other places so maybe this is inline with current rates. Either way, I'm happy with their service.

    I'd agree!The care they take is worth more than the cost, IMO.

    Agreed. Although the last order I received were all wrapped together. Up to that point, each book had been wrapped separately.
