Here's some help about shipping to me (since I am a military address): Our mailing address will receive all mail (junk, cards, bills, boxes, and magazines) Shipping to APO is just like shipping to San Francisco, California, that's where our mail is processed before coming to me. Just because we live in Japan doesn't mean our mail is international. It's stateside. You will have to fill out the long customs form. If you are ordering something from a website, see if they can ship it directly to us. You can check on every website for shipping information to see if they ship to APO addresses. It will say if they do or not. I know Amazon.com will ship to APO. Do not go to a Mail Boxes Etc. place to ship stuff. They will overcharge you and then ship it parcel post. It is worth the wait in line at the post office... trust me ($190 vs $20... which would you choose?), not to mention it will take a month to get here. Try to shove it all in a flat rate box, espically if it's heavy. That cost only $9. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions
Just finished the Harry Potter Series (yea!), I don't read: trashy romance, anti-christian stuff, bloody, horror, etc. I do read: classics, interesting plots, a book that I can escape into. I read mostly fiction, but if you have a good book on knitting or crochet and I don't already have it, I'd love to add it to my collection.
Recent Reads: Harry Potter (1-7), The Thirteenth Tale, The Why Cafe
Reading: Angels and Demons
I'm a stay at home mom to 3 kids. My husband is active duty Air Force and we are stationed in Japan (mailing address is APO, which is stateside). We just got here in August from Little Rock, Arkansas where I have lived my entire life. So far, I like Japan. It's much more busy that I had ever experienced before, but there is so much to explore and we are keeping busy doing so.
