EDIT: Okay, I knew I was trying to do too much today. I’ve been getting lots of messages and wondering if these people actually read (as in red, not reed) my post. Yes, they did, and I did a LOUSY job of communicating what I meant. The $1.75 and $1.50 book prices DO NOT include shipping. The figures below are how much you’d have to add to the price of the books to have it shipped to you. Thud, thud, thud (me banging the palm of my hand against my forehead). I’m sooooo sorry for the confusion.
Example: 14 books at $1.50/book + $8.95 flat-rate shipping = $29.95
If you didn’t read my previous post, this one will make no sense to you. It may not even make sense if you did…
I’m not sure how much I’ll be charged to get the books shipped here. I’m getting them for 96 cents apiece plus tax/shipping. They’re coming from across the world (Oregon) via Fed Ex. In the past, tax/shipping has cost me roughly 75 cents/book.
So, if you want 1-10 copies, they’ll be $1.75 each. More than 10 = $1.50 each.
Trying to figure out how much the books will cost to send. Obviously, if you live close, or if we can get together for a visit sometime, I can just deliver them to you free of charge.
Here’s what I know (not much):
I can fit 2 books in a smallish envelope.
To send 1 book = a little over $2
2 books = $2.50
I can fit 3-5 books in a bigger envelope, but price goes up because of the size.
3 books = almost $4 maybe
4 books = $4.50 (I’m guessing here)
5 books = $5 ish
So, let’s say you wanted 7. You could add $5 + $2.50. I also have flat-rate boxes. All I can fit (14 books) for $8.95. And I don’t usually use regular boxes to send media mail, but it may be cheaper. Does anyone know?? I need to find out.
If you know how many books you want, message me. I’ll send you my address and a price. We can negotiate if you don’t like it. If you can get me the $ sooner than later, I can use it to buy the books. (I have until the end of August–eek! Maybe I can sweet talk my way into an extension.)
If you already messaged me, I’m off to message you back and give you some rough figures. Thanks, guys!
