The lucky winning buyer pays $3.50 shipping to U.S. locales, but I will ship internationally. The book will be shipped in a bubble wrapped mailer. If you wish them packaged in a different way, please let me know and I'm sure we can work something out. I will combine orders to save you money on shipping, and it is usually $1.00 for each additional book after the first. I'm very sorry, but I can not be responsible for the United States Postal Service, so if you wish insurance, please ask. Good Luck!!!
