 Today is Sunday August 12.  I live in Georgia and just returned from a weekend trip to find I had received a book from Florida with the date August 13.  Why? I showed Hubby and he started humming the theme frome Twilight Zone!

When I receive  a book and mark it RECEIVED and it has only the PBS printed label I never enter that as the day it was mailed. The actual day it was mailed could be several days befofore it was actually mailed. It could have been printed on Monday and mailed on Friday. So I leave that slot blank unless there's an actual PO cancellation stamp. And half the tine it's illegible.
