This is just not my month! Too many family issues and forgot my vacation hold ended so a book was wishlisted and requested. I accepted it cause the book is only about 50 pages and wouldn't cost so much to send. I'm out of PBS money so I have to go to the PO to send but because of all the stress going on, I forgot that it's Thanksgiving week so our local PO closes really early this week. I can still send the book but how many stamps do I put on a book that cost 6.4 ounce? I have the forever stamps.

Ok, totally forgot about the USPS discussions. Maybe it'll be better if I post it in there. Lol.

When you print the label, it will give you the estimated postage cost for the book. Its usually 4-5 first class stamps

Forever stamps are worth 44 right now, so 5 x .44 = $2.20 ... I used the USPS site to calculate my zip in VA to yours in WI and it said it costs $2.24 first class. So if you have 5 forever stamps and buy another 4 some place. :)
