Hi Melinda.

Yes, you most certainly may take all four of the Geo books.  Their combined weight comes in at a little over 1kg, so I'd have to post them in a medium satchel which means it will cost $14.55 for postage.  The total of the books and postage together is $26.55.  

I can fit another 1.5kg or so into the satchel (max 3kg), so if there is anything additional that catches your fancy I can add it in with no additional postage costs.

      Hi all
      We have finished homeschooling and these are the last of our resources. All are in good to excellent condition. I have given a link to each resource and all are very similar or the same to the product seen in the link. I have tried to give a very fair price, as I want to be rid of these, but they did cost me some money. I have given weights in ( ) for postage. I would really prefer to post in pre-paid satchels as that it the easiest for me.  We loved these resources and found them very helpful for educating our kids. I maybe negotiable on price.
