About Bluebird Books

NO CHARGE for additional books sold and shipped to US destinations via Media Mail! Why not browse our books and add a 2nd book to your order? We diligently attempt to describe each item we sell, including any flaws we note.NON-U.S. SHIPMENTS: On January 27, 2013 postal rates were dramatically raised for parcels going to international destinations from the USA. As a result, we have raised our shipping charges. HOWEVER, sometimes the actual shipping cost may be less (due to weight or other factors). When this occurs, Bluebird Books will REFUND the difference between the charged amount and our actual cost (if the difference is greater than one dollar).
