Philippine Post has cancelled surface mail, so I'm now sending books Only to My Country.

local
- Metro Manila and any province within the Philippines: A 2-book minimum is required to economize shipping.
- I ship via courier, Xend Express.
- Mooches may be combined with books from my cousin Dianne , except for promo mooches.
- If you plan to mooch more books, tell me so I can hold off the sending
- Meetups at Flips Flipping Pages / Bookmoochers Pilipinas activities are also encouraged.

international
- I send worldwide unless book condition states otherwise (some hardbounds and large paperbacks).
- Books will be sent via sea mail. Shipping time is arbitrary, and may take anywhere from two weeks to six months, so please bear with me and don't mark as lost without emailing first.
- Please check out my cousin Dianne's BM account because we combine our shipping to split the costs.
- For books over 250g, I will have to ask for a second mooch to help defray shipping costs .
- There will be some delay depending on the time of the mooch because I follow a shipping schedule and a budget limit.
- I send books in batches, usually at the start and middle of the month, as many as my budget will allow.

NEXT BATCH OF SENDING WILL BE IN MID-FEBRUARY(3 SLOTS).

Will send earlier if I get some extra cash.

If my conditions are acceptable, please feel free to mooch from me.

condition
- Most of my books are in good to excellent condition, some from my own collection, some from bargain bookstores. Condition notes state specific book condition, please feel free to ask if you need more details.
- Books usually have a small book plate sticker, my name on one of the flyleafs, and a plastic cover (for books from my collection).
- I have a smoke-free household, a shih tzu named Macky, and two cats, an orange mackerel tabby named Tomas, and a pure white shorthair named Missy, who often poke around my books, or curl up with me when I read. I suspect they also read while I'm not looking. If cat hair is a concern I can inspect the book thoroughly before sending.

note
To those I'm mooching from:

I am allergic to cigarette smoke, I love hardbacks, and prefer trade paperbacks over mass market copies. Am fussy about book condition, I hope you can inform me if there's anything I should be concerned about, especially if you have a different edition listed, or the book's condition is not stated in your inventory.

A special request, please also cross out all published prices on book cover or inside the dust jacket, and declare the package as a gift with no commercial value, so that it won't get held up and/or overcharged at customs.

Thanks!
