One Size Fits All…

I have been very concerned with the shipping issues, but they are being resolved fast. I had always wanted to ship “box-in-box” for the better protection of your books. The books as shipped from the printer are in a box that is quite adequate on the ends, and good enough “for government work” on the sides. However, I wasn’t satisfied.

However, it turns out that by making 4 judicious cuts in the ends of the printer’s boxes, the boxes fit in the “Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box”. That means that I ship for a flat rate (independent of weight, dependent on distance). Better still, I get box-in-box at no additional cost. The nearest book surfaces are underneath three layers of corrugated cardboard… I think it will be fine.

The books are also wrapped in paper.

Just letting you know that you will be receiving a box of about 12 by 12 by 5 3/4 (inches) with a weight of 11 pounds.

One inch is 2.54 cm, and one kilogram is about 2.2 pounds.

    Oh, it is beginning to feel like Christmas. I am in NC, so the books shouldn’t take very long to arrive from VA. Cannot. Wait.

    Bob, can you comment on the number of books which were printed? 11 pound bundles of joy emerging from the 1,400 pound Mother load are indicative but it would be nice to know for sure.

    It is a lie! I have your books! Oh never mind. Just don’t cut yourself trimming edges. I hate bloody books.

    Have you guys ever done this? My dad was a fan of it, called it “pre-reading.”
