I ordered a book last weekend.  The sender mailed the book out on Tuesday (8/30).  I received the book today (9/02).  It traveled from Connecticut to Georgia in only 3 days by Media Mail!  I'm impressed...especially since one I received earlier this week vanished on its way from New Jersey to Georgia for 11 days before finally arriving.

I love it when Media Mail is so fast!  I've gotten a few packages faster than first class.  They must have had extra room on the priority truck those days.  :)

Usually, it takes about a week for my books (sending and receiving) to get to their destinations.  I was completely baffled by the one book that vanished for 11 days, but I guess USPS made up for it by sending another Media Mail book in 3 days!
