On May 14, 2007, the USPS canceled all outgoing international surface mail (sometimes known as "sea mail") from the United States, citing increased costs and reduced demand due to competition from airmail services such as FedEx and UPS.[97] The decision has been criticized by the Peace Corps and military personnel overseas, as well as independent booksellers and other small businesses who rely on international deliveries.


Prior to May 14, 2007, I could send a 2 pound book to anywhere in Europe for about $7. Each additional book was about $2. I miss those days...
