   It is for some areas including the UK and Australia but I don't know if
it's available worldwide. As I said, it doesn't even show up as an option
on their website so you have to ask for it. Around here you have to go to
the post office and get a large canvas sack to put it in and fill out a tag
that goes on the sack. I've sent stuff via bookrate for years and never had
to do that before. I suspect that they're just making us do their job!
