I just received 2 books in a row that arrived in my mailbox only 3 days after the postmarked date.  For the one that arrived today, the "it's been mailed" e-mail came 2 days ago.  The sender used pre-printed postage, so it may have been printed the 9th, but sent the 10th.  Way to go Media Mail!

I love it when that happens!  I'm in Georgia, and one Saturday I dropped a book in a blue box.  Then two days later, on Monday afternoon, it was delievered in California.  My jaw hit the floor, haha!  I try to remember those good things when I'm waiting on 'lost' books...like right now.  =)

You guys are lucky. I mailed a book media mail on the 2/2 to North Carolina, from Ohio. And it still hasn't got there!

I just received a book this week that was mailed media mail from an APO address, and it arrived in 5 days!  I thought that was great.
