Tip of the Week

If you are mailing a book to someone (as a gift, for instance) and you aren't pressed for time, you can request that it be sent via "book rate mail." This shipping method is one of the cheapest available, typically $2.00 or less for a standard-sized hard cover book. The down side is that you never know how long it will take to be delivered, although a reasonable time frame is 1-2 weeks.
