    You’ve got some great non-Mountaineer printed titles on your shelves, especially on Canadian topics, but there is really no way of knowing that unless we can browse your shelves. Could you maybe post photos of those shelves, so that we could at least browse titles?

    I was disappointed to find a code for a big discount after I had already chosen to buy two books. The books were suggested by a group leader and I bit. So sad, full price.
