Last night I boxed up a huge box of books for the Books for Keeps Charity: http://booksforkeeps.blogspot.com/

When I was done, I thought the box was pretty heavy. I had my husband weigh himself holding it, but he has size 15 feet, so we have a hard time getting an accurate scale reading, and I'm way too pregnant to hold a 70lb box that big. 

Anyway, we figured it was right around 70lbs. I crossed my fingers that it wasn't over and sent him off to the post office. Final verdict: 69lbs 4oz! 

And I am forbidden by DH from ever shipping that many books again! haha

$30 and a little change to send it across the country. Love media mail rate!
