What is the cheapest way to ship books?

I just sold some books on amazon and only got $3.99 per book shipping. However, the books cost much more than that to ship. They were college textbooks which are heavy. I shipped them all fed ex ground. One book was $12, another $10, another $8 etc. What is the absolute cheapest way to ship textbooks?

    At the post office they have flat rate envelopes, the postage is 4.70. I sell books at amazon too and that's the cheapest way I've found to ship them.

    US mail media rate. If you have a really large shipment, freight shipping can be cheaper, but you need to be > 50 lbs for that.

    Try the USPS. They have an online postage calculator for packages -
