I picked and packed many thousands of books over nearly two decades. When I scaled back Pacifica Military History, I promised myself, my wife, and my orthopedic surgeon that I’d never again pick up a case of books (35 to 40 pounds each).
The current crop of Pacifica Military History print-on-demand books are manufactured on the East Coast, 3,000 miles away. It’s now too expensive to ship books across the U.S., then reship them. To keep the orthopedic surgeon happy and costs to you down, I have installed pointers to the page on bookseller sites for each of my live print-on-demand paper titles—now more than 35. These booksellers charge less than I would if I had to ship books across the country and store them in the right environment.
