I'm agog at the recent increases to Australia Post charges and I've tried to keep the postage as low as possible, but in most instances that is not very low (for example the cheapest I can post a book around Australia, in a pre-pack is $8.50). Rest assured that I will try and keep these charges as low as possible (by reusing parcels, by using recycled packaging). I am really sorry that in some instances the post charge costs more than the book, and I hope this will not deter you from going ahead and picking an exciting new book for yourself or your lovers.
