I was wondering if anyone else has ever had this happen. I shipped a book on Sept. 10 with delivery confirmation. It was checked in at my local PO, then checked in at another PO, and it seems it's been sitting in MA since Sept. 12. There have been no further scans since then. The only reason I checked is because books never take this long (in my experience) to be delivered. I've never checked on a DC before because the books are always delivered so quickly. Is this something I should check on? And if I should, how do I do that? It doesn't say a specific PO, just the city.

there are several logical explenations. one is that DC isnt always scanned every step of the way. many times its only scanned once or twice or not at all.  another reason is that media mail is only shipped when there is room.
