Media mail up to 1lb = $2.23

First class parcel 7 - 8 oz =$2.19

The printable postage here still goes to media mail at 7oz., it should be first class for an additional ounce now, since the rate change.

But it is also not printing any postage right now, either.

i think you're reading the table incorrectly.  here's a link to the spelled out prices in the Help Center, updated today: http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/help_item.php?id=515

you can see the same basic info directly at usps.com: http://pe.usps.com/text/dmm100/postage.htm  (note that the line in each table is 'up to' or 'not over' the weight shown.)

the cutoff for first class vs media mail is still 7oz - though now it's actually cheaper at 7 oz (not over) to send 1st class, where before it was 2 cents more for books between 6oz and 7oz which i never minded as it usually got the book there faster.
