Dear Brother Dr. Shabbir,

Sorry about the lukewarm response to the request. Apparently, everyone has tightened belts because of hard economic times. As you know I have two kids in college, relatives in Pak who need help occasionally, and my obligation of sponsorships for two students. Nevertheless, I will try to purchase about 5 additional copies of QXP 4th edition around the Christmas Holidays to place in the Masjids located in Gaithersburg, Hagerstown, Falls Church, and Baltimore. It would be great if other Brothers/Sisters can join in this cause.

I would suggest using USPS Media Mail for domestic shippings. It is the cheapest mailing option and takes a few days more compared to the First Class Mail. UPS Ground costs more but it delivers within 1 to 6 days depending on the distance. For example delivery is guaranteed in 1 day from NYC to Washington, DC and 6 days to Los Angeles, CA. Also, using Scotch Bubble Mailer envelope, which is very light, can reduce the weigh of the shipment.

Last, webmaster needs to update the pricing and add information about shipping options and costs. This will eliminate any confusion. Customers will be able to choose the mailing option they can afford.
