* Priority Mail International  mail class ships in a flat-rate card board envelope - it does not afford much protection, and would not be the best choice for an expensive book.   It is also not an option for every country and the book must fit inside the envelope - A large coffee table size book would not be a candidate for this mail class.

** Surface Mail rates are an economical way to ship a significant number of books.  The trade-off for the lower cost is in the delivery time.   Delivery times to Canada and Mexico usually takes 2-3 weeks to arrive.  Shipping to most other countries typically takes 3-4 weeks, but can take longer depending on customs and remoteness of location.
