Today I packaged up a bunch of books and they will go into the mail in the next few minutes, so I marked them "mailed."  It brings me up to 52 books in the mail.  This is the most I've ever had at one time!   I suppose some of you could order some more from me, before any of them arrive, anyway, and increase this record number, but I'm a bit tired of packaging books at the moment.  WHEW!!

This was "only" 17 today to a total of 52 in the mail.  (Edited for clarification.)

That's gonna be pricey! I can't recall the largest # of books I ever shipped out at once, but the largest amount of money for any one day's shipping was almost $70 one time...

Good Heavens!  I'm in the process of packaging my books to ship out today, and I thought I had alot at 13!  However looking at the rest of my books mailed, I will have 25, so I geuss that's not too bad.  But 52 - Wow!

That's not all in one mailing, but the total that I have en route.  I "only" mailed 17 today, but that brought it up to 52 en route.  I partly compensate for it by buying unused stamps on Ebay and elsewhere for less than face value.

Oh such dreams I was having of 52 books heading your way all at once - and then I read your post and took back my covetous thoughts.  Then, I had to go take a peek at your profile and after seeing your book numbers - those thoughts came back in spades. :)

Perhaps one of these days I shall find you in my postbox.

Enjoy your evening off from wrapping - though with your book selection maybe not.

Wow, Winston!  That is remarkable!  I cannot imagine  what your account page must look like.  Bet you have to scroll through pages and pages of "Books I Have Mailed." 

Me, I am just agonizing because I have a mere four books to be packaged and mailed, lol.

I thought I would check out your bookshelf because I wondered how many books you had....643 according to what I saw...goodness, if I had that many books stacked up I wouldn't be buried in them! *L* 

guess I need to make another run through my books so I can beef up my bookshelf...although I have a lot on my TBR list....I should read those!

Hey, Winston! Thank you! Because you posted this, it made me think about how many books we sent out this month. I'd figured because many of them were deals and box trades, I probably still wouldn't make the top 50 list. But when I went to look at your stats, guess what I found!!! hahhaha I made the top 50!!! I'm only like #48, but I have 11 ready to go out, I might move up a little!

hahahahah Thanks again! (and of course, thanks to everybody that ordered too!)

I was excited when I had 10 out at the same time.  Good for you Winston!  Hope you sent out alot of the older books you had.
