I mailed 2 heavy computer books on Saturday morning from Texas to Illinois and they arrived TODAY!  I was just amazed that they arrived that quickly.

This isn't the first time that things have arrived quickly, but this was a box with 2 heavy books (over 6 lbs) and I thought for sure it would get pushed back or something.

Here's one that struck me: A book from a neighboring state took more than 2 weeks to reach me in Ohio, but one I mailed to Alaska arrived there in less than 2 days.  How cool is that?!
