I ordered two books but when the package came it only contained the one book. I PM"d sender who said yes it contained both. Upon further inspection of the wrapper the bottom was ripped and retaped. So now I dont know how to go about marking these two books. Thanks

I guess I will mark the one RWP and just let the other run out of time

I would mark the one you recieved as recieved without problem unless there was a problem and then wait for the other to time out.

You should file a "lost in the mail" report at the post offfice.  Turn the report in and show them the packaging and the order slip if it came with the one book.  That will start a search through items that were lost in the mail.  It's not always successful, but worth a shot!!


Gee, can ya tell I'm a retired postie!!

I would follow what Michelle and Sherri said - Mark the one received as such, let the other go lost, fill out a lost mail report with USPS and hope that the other book turns up.
