Amazon.com lists the iMovie 3 VQS as having a shipping surcharge of $3.80 due to its “unusual size or weight”. Considering that the book is 194 pages, this is clearly screwy. Other books, such as Tom Negrino’s Keynote VQS show the same thing. I’ve let Peachpit know about this, and I have some friends at Amazon who are also looking into it. If you order a book and are actually charged, please email me so I can keep track of who this is affecting.
Update: Thanks to some speedy persistence by one of my friends at Amazon, we’ve discovered that Ingram (where Amazon gets its catalog info) listed the book as being 19.99 pounds. The problem should be cleared up within the next couple of days.
