Re: [webdesign-396] Amazon Shipping

Not necessarily used books. (in fact I just checked and none of the used versions, or even new except from Amazon directly, are marked Prime). Anything marked "Prime" I get free shipping on, SECOND DAY no less. Or 3.99 (per item) for next day. A LOT of products on Amazon, even some I get from other vendors, have PRIME status. So there's always a chance. But if the books you are buying now are 50 dollars once you are all done with shipping, used, with Amazon Prime you end up with the following prices (rounding up):

$27
$10
$10
$10
---
$57 (about). 

And that's for brand new books. So it's not a savings compared to the used books, but it's not much more than what you'd be paying either. Also as mentioned, you don't have to buy them all at once. I have all of them here (one on the kindle only) so you can review them in person. 

If anyone wants to order through me, they would have to prepay cause I am so broke I am eating Goose liver. (Wait a second I LOVE goose liver...um nvm...) :D

Kind Regards
