I am a postal employee.  Recently we had a memo to do more spot-checking on package weights, especially for home printed labels and postage (Click-N-Ship, etc. which could include PBS, too) Some folks like to fudge a little on the weight so the postage will be a little less.  So, make sure your weights are correct so the book won't possibly come back, or arrive postage due.

This is why I invested in a scale, and I always round up to the next ounce.  :)
