Does it cost more to mail a book to Hawaii, and if so can I cancel the book rather than pay higher postage?

It costs no more to mail to Hawaii than to any of the other 49 states.  It just might take longer to get there.

Thanks, I thought so but it is best to make sure.

I will use PBS DC or first clas, depending on weight, to the books going over water.  The media mail goes by boat.  Sometimes a very slow boat.

No, mail costs to Hawaii are the same as any other state.  But as already mentioned, enroute times can be a bit longer.
