THIS IS A COLOR BOOK  $8 per book, 128 pages.   Shipping was $3 per book.   
So for large format books   the shipping increases the cost   8.5 by 11 inches

10 books
$8 shipping,   $about 80 cents each, 

$3 per book (including 20 cents tax)  because this was shipped to a NY address

A single book (5 x 8 or 6 x 9 or a thin book that is 8.5 x 11) costs $2.15 to produce and then about $3 to ship.   But in bulk, the shipping price drops.

In small quantities, the shipping can be $1 per book

8 books,  $7.72 for shipping.
this is also for larger format books,  8.5 by 11

Why not get a free account and learn more?  It's a reading exercise for students.  Why not produce a book and then ask your students to set up a publishing account for you?   You can enter the payment information, but the steps to upload and design a cover require some close reading.  

For parents and students who can't afford to buy the finished book, the school can arrange for distribution of the ebook.   See the links to free books at
