Hi, I have a book that I want to mail to my Aunt for Christmas.  I'm too far from the post office and would like to just do it thru Paperback.  How do I go about printing the label and postage?   thanks to anyone for help.  Swindy48

Is the book not listed at all or simply not on your shelf?  Type in the ISBN to find the book page. If you find it, click on 'mail-to-a-friend', which is on the drop down menu under 'more options' and proceed with entering her address, etc., just like a regular swap. If it's not listed at all then you could just go to any random book page and use 'mail-to-a-friend'. Just make sure the weight matches so it puts the right amount of postage. Of course, if you do it the second way then the book insert below the mailing label will not show the right book.  Remember too that there is a $0.55 fee to use printable postage, unless it's your 1x month free as a standard member.

You use the Mail To A Friend option to get a label and postage. No credits. No membership required.

Please note that the book will be on your own My Account page to mark as received.
