Ordered a book a little over 10 days ago.  It was coming from Tennessee and I'm in Louisiana so not that far to go.  A week ago the little truck was showing that it was in my town.  I go out to the mailbox every day but no book.  Today I check the status and the little truck is back in Tennessee.  What is going on here?  I want my book.  I know the sender is not going to be out a credit since they sent it using PBS postage but am I going to be out a credit?

The little truck is for entertainment purposes only.  If you click on the "Details" button it will show you where your book has been scanned (if they used PBS DC or PBS Printed Postage).

I know that the post-office receives a minimum of funding (I believe lower than education but don't quote me), but I just have to say "Our Tax Dollars at work."

I had one that I mailed last Tuesday that didn't get scanned into the system until today.  First scan was in the next state.  I'm not sure how it missed getting scanned anywhere in AL, but it did.

I've gotten lots of books that were never scanned until delivery...and don't forget, that's what it is -- delivery confirmation -- not tracking.

If a book is marked "lost in the mail" you do automatically get your credit back when that happens.
