Well, never seen this happen before.  This book is coming to me but I'm thinking it's never going to get here.  Why does it keep getting sent back to Indianapolis from Portland do you think?

I would call the 1-800 USPS number and give them your tracking number. Hopefully they can do something! Umm yeah the book doesn't look like it's going to get to you anytime soon. The machines that sort the mail are obviously having some trouble with it for whatever reason.

Well, look like it's going back to the sender now.  Too freaking bizarre

Maybe they hand wrote the address, and got something incorrect?

It's possible.  It's weird because most mail comes to me via Federal Way not Portland.  Very strange, have to see what the sender does.

Maybe it's a small book traveling First Class?  My Media Mail is also sorted in Federal Way, but First Class is scanned through the Kent or Seattle branches.
