Hey … did you know that there is a cheap way of shipping via the Post Office? Well specifically shipping books (and I think CDs and DVDs as well). It’s called Media Mail and it’s a bit of a secret because I don’t think I’ve ever seen it posted on the wall in the post office. Just be warned that your packages may be inspected and it may take a while for delivery. I sent my five envelopes out of my favorite Post Office (New York City by Penn Station) on Thursday and they arrived today which I am told is Wednesday. Coast to Coast in under a week! I wish I had priced what FedEx would have charged so I can compare but if you want to ship out a book…try media mail. Also, anticipate it getting beat up in the process so try to protect it unless you don’t care how it arrives.
