SHIPPING: All of our books are very carefully wrapped and packaged, and are only shipped in well-padded boxes.We never use flimsy mailers. We do not charge for handling. We strive to ship within a day or two of payment received, however there are occasions when unforeseen situations may arise, thus delaying shipment for an extra day or two. This rarely happens. All merchandise shipped within the United States will be shipped via FedEx Ground, insured, unless otherwise stated. FedEx does not ship to p.o. boxes, and so any shipment to a p.o. box will be sent via USPS media mail. Overseas shipments will be sent either USPS Express Mail or Priority Mail International. International surface mail is no longer offered. Combined shipping is always available.

*IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTE: Since ebay has recently changed their shipping criteria, we have had to make adjustments as well .

However if a po box address is provided, the shipment will be sent Parcel Post since FedEx will only deliver to street addresses.
