Just to let you all know that it can happen:

I put a book in the mail on Monday. My mail gets picked up in the afternoon. The person received it on Tuesday! By mid-day! Okay, it only went from LA to San Diego, but I've had other books within CA take weeks.

And, it was media mail. I'm still reeling about it.

I had one like that a couple of weeks ago. Overnight from Louisiana to Mississippi.

I've been noticing a lot of fast delivery's lately. I sent one from Maine on a Friday afternoon and it was delivered to MO on Monday. I can see that first class but I mailed it Media Mail.

The first book I ever mailed went from San Diego to New York City in two days. 

I had a book take 3 weeks to go from San Diego to Los Angeles.  It's very random!

Had a book last week take two days from Minnesota to Arizona, surprised me!

Meanwhile, I have one from CA that was marked shipped 1 Jun that still has not made an appearance.

Every book I send Media Mail to the Atlanta area from here in Jacksonville, Florida has gotten there in two days.  The Father's Day card I sent to my dad in Atlanta last Wednesday, First Class, still hasn't gotten there.  Go figure...

I just received a media mail book that went from Texas to Michigan in less than 48 hours. I ordered it late afternoon on Wednesday and it was here by Friday mid-day. I was amazed!
