You should contact HLJ and ask them why shipping was so much. That sounds
like HLJ screwed up on the shipping. I used the Currency Converter and that's
about $9 shipping for an about $5 book, it sounds like HLJ screwed up big
time! I was only charged about $6 shipping for a 1/144 Turn A kit and 8
Gundam Markers. I've noticed mail ordering's better to do, when you have more
then two items to order. If it costs that much to send by UPS, then HLJ
should have sent it by mail. UPS should have been only about $5-$6. I don't
think it takes nine bucks to ship a book. You should check out UPS's site and
see what their price chart is for shipping the book and if UPS says it
cheaper then what HLJ charged you, make HLJ aware of this.
