me to just Buddy them to you. It may be best if I order them, so you have a wrapper with my name and address. Also, besure to not use anything that says Priority on it and only send by Media Mail to save you shipping. It shouldn't cost you more than about 4 or 5 dollars at the most if you package them correctly. I usually take a plastic shopping bad and wrap them all in that first, then, take a paper bag you get from the grocery store, slit it up the middle where the seam is and then cut around the bottom so it ends up looking like are large piece of brown paper. Then, I take a piece of the wrapper that has the to part and add my label as the from part and put it inside the wrapper with the books and then roll the brown paper over the books and seal it with shipping tape kind of like I would a Christmas package. If you secure the label well with the shipping tape, it should be safe. I also wrap a piece of the shipping tape around the entire package both lengthwise and heighth wise and it makes it pretty strong. It also saves on postage since you are not using a box.

 

So, if you put the biggest hardback on the bottom and then put the paperbacks side by side so they fit like the hardback and then put another hard back on the top, they end up being easier to wrap like one big package. If you think  i am being too compulsive by sending you this information, it is only because I have learned from experience that others who have sent me large amounts of books have done it in ways that cost them a lot more than necessary. You can ship them the way I said as one large package and it will save you a lot of money.  It can also save you money by going through PBS to put on the confirmation of delivery number through the club as opposed to buying it from the Post Office. They will charge you double. If you buy it through PBS and their Kiosk by purchasing money in your acct, they charge for the service 27 cents plus 18 cents for the delivery of confirmation. It is printed right on the wrapper. Also, it is a good idea to weigh the package before you wrap it by sitting the books on a postage scale or if you don't have one of those, stand on your scale and see how much you weigh and then hold the books and stand on it again and see if you can tell the weight. It will help you figure out how much the postage is ahead of time. You may know all this already, but one person sent me some books and it cost her $26.67 or something like taht, over 26.00 anyway cause she used a box that said priority mail on it. DON'T use anything with priority where you can see it or they will charge that price. 

OK, thanks for the great deal Sandra
