Weird thing today!! I have my home address I use for paperbackswap, and I have a PO Box I use for bills!!! I do not have a foward on my home address so theres no excuse why the book went to the PO Box, and I do not live in a small town either (as a matter of fact I live by a university)

Today I got a book in my po box, which clearly stated my home addresss on it.... wtf??? That should not have happened..

Anyone else had this happen to them before????

A clerk who was sorting the mail (probably a Box clerk) most likely recognized your name and knew you had a box so they just gave it to you at your box instead of at home. They probably thought you would get it faster. Technically it is not supposed to happen, but it often does. Mostly because of trying to get it to the customer faster since box has to be in by 8:30 - 10:00 am and delivery could be at the end of the day.
