I am doing my first book deal.  7 for 1.  Ok, the question is, 1 book was taken from my bookshelf, but I am mailing 7.  When I print for mailing, it is going to show the media mail rate for 1 book.  Since I have to go to the post office, they just disregard that, right?  Or is there another way to do it?

Thanks!

You can also just weigh the whole package then enter that weight as the "wrapped" book weight to get the correct postage.

Lisa, if you are going to the post office they will weigh the books and apply the correct postage.  Some clerks will mention if the printed weight/suggested postage is off, but it will not be a problem :-)
