I received a package today.

I ordered a book last week.

Today I received a box.  Decent-sized thing, imagine a box that can hold about 15-20 standard DVD cases.

I open it.  There's paper stuffing inside it.

I take out the stuffing.  There's a bubble-wrap envelope taped shut.

I undo the tape.  And then I undo the adhesive seal.  There's a book inside, in tattered shrink-wrap.

Really, was that all necessary?  I've seen people just send me stuff in the bubble-wrap envelope.  And that's it.  This is overkill.

    Reminds me of the way CDJapan packs stuff.

    Though I like it since things ordered from CDJapan are extremely expensive and getting damaged during their 2-3 continent romp would be seriously annoying.

    They do it for books too.

  • ^^ Does the excessive packing affect the shipping cost?

    No, shipping is a standard cost fo $3.99 per hardcover I think.
