I have no idea why, but theUSPS has covered up the recipients name and taped some white E713 form telling me what qualifies, as well as stamping media mail subjuect to inspection, the thing is, they didn't inspect it, wth!  

I  even took this book to the counter becasue it is a cookbook (magazine size), I thought the postage may be more than what the wrapper said, so now I guess I just mail it regular mail and lose the previous postage?

Sorry Christina, I can't help you without seeing the book and the label.  I suggest you take it back to the PO you mailed it at and ask them for an expanation.

It turns out that the USPS did open my book and because they thought it was a magazine they returned it, they didn't even take the book out of the packing to look at it, I guess they were making an educated guess.  I marched my booty down there this morning, opened it with the lady at the counter, she shook her head and apologized for all lazy postal workers and signed off on it and sent it back on it's way, thank goodness!
