I try to send book promptly and tell you up front when to expect shipment but I make no more than one trip to the post office a week. I ship domestically by media mail, unless priority is cheaper, and in reused packaging.
Moochers outside North America, I am not able to ship single-book mooches due to the postage cost per point. Since this point has been overlooked a lot, let me emphesize it:
**I REQUIRE a minimum of 2 books for international mooches.**
If you don't see two books you want from my inventory (I know my inventory is small), I will hold a book while you find a US Angel. With the significant increase in postage for sending from the US that took effect at the beginning of this year, I will be able to accept few international mooches and will have to decide case by case so I have reset my account to "Ask First".
Our smoke-free home is shared by two cats. Many of my books were acquired second-hand so I cannot speak to their exposure before joining our household.
Have long since filled all our bookshelves, added more, and still have stacks of books that haven't found shelf space. I love that mooched books are going to someone who really wants them; like finding a new family with a big fenced yard for your beloved big dog who hates being cooped up on a shelf.
