----------------------SELLER NOTES
Any form of payment is fine.
I ask $2.53 towards shipping, which is the lowest Media Mail price (unless you suspect your book is lightweight & would be cheaper via 1st class). I pay any postage over that, no matter how many books you get, even if it takes 2-3 boxes.
Tracking is an additional 90 cents, which I will pay if your purchase is over $50.
I can provide receipt showing package was indeed shipped, and I will refund if I have overlooked anything, but any other insurance is buyer's option (1.95 for $50, 2.45 for $100).

Nonsmoking home.
Minimum $5 plus shipping.
