I beat you to the front door of Sh&Co., last week, ordering a book of poetry. My rationale for this and similar exploits is that I’m helping to preserve culture that I one day hope to experience face to face.

The killer feature ordering books from Sh&Co. is that they will, at your option, stamp books for you. Also, for 83 cents extra, they will include a hand-typed poem. Amazon can’t do that.
