I was checking the details on one of the books I sent out, it looks like this:

  • 3/8/2008 5:00 PM - Electronic Shipping Info Received - CHEYENNE,WY
  • 3/11/2008 12:43 PM - Enroute - DENVER,CO
  • 3/11/2008 2:33 PM - Enroute - DENVER,CO
  • 3/11/2008 3:06 PM - Enroute - DENVER,CO
  • 3/14/2008 1:52 PM - Enroute - SPRINGFIELD,MA
  • 3/14/2008 3:51 PM - Enroute - SPRINGFIELD,MA
  • 3/17/2008 11:22 AM - Missent - COLCHESTER,CT
  • Does this last one mean just that the book got shipped to the wrong place and that it should be back on track now???

    i got one of those 'missent' entries a couple of weeks ago too.  there had been a delay before that, but it got back on track the next day:

    • 2/29/2008 4:16 PM ET - Acceptance - SCOTTS VALLEY, CA
    • 3/3/2008 6:34 AM ET - Missent - SAN JOSE, CA
    • 3/4/2008 10:54 PM ET - Enroute - SAN JOSE, CA
    • 3/6/2008 3:05 AM ET - Enroute - PETALUMA, CS

    (since it was sent first class, i would have expected the first san jose scan to be on 2/29 or 3/1, not wait until 3/3.)

    Yes. It got to the wrong destination PO and they scanned it to show in the system why it is taking longer to arrive. After scanning, they would ship it back out the same day. The enroute scans are done at processing facilities that sort regional mail.
