I know this is a very minor thing, but when I'm on the home page in the "Welcome Back" box it says:

1 Book to Mark Received

1 Book En Route to You

I am waiting on two books.  Why would they be listed differently, and is there really any difference between having a book to mark received and having one en route???

I had a couple books sent to me with DC and when they showed Delivered, they changed from "En Route to You" to "to Mark Received."  That may be a trigger, but right now I am waiting on a book sent without DC and it is "to Mark Received."  It was just marked mailed on 9/20, so they can't assume I should already have it, right?  It's just going from FL to GA, but even the "Pulse of PBS" thing says books from FL to GA average 6 days, not 3.

This is a new feature.  And it seems that the glitches are not quite fixed.  The difference is one has a PBS DC and the other doesn't.  Don't worry.  Just mark it when you receive it.  They are both under the same tab on your account page.

I know it's not a big deal, was thought it odd that they were listed differently.  FYI -- neither book was sent with DC.

I've noticed that too.

It seems to be a time thing ... they switch to "Book to Mark Received" after some amount of days. (I think).

I have not noticed that it has anything to do with DC, either.
