Another question -- I'm waiting on some books which are being sent to me in Illinois from California with DC. When I click on the check mark next to the order in my "Books En Route to You" tab, and get taken to the map, the little USPS van (why does it honk when I click on it -- is that supposed to be cute?...was totally not expecting it and it scared me!) is in Colorado. However, there's no "waypoint"/grey dots yet. How do they know it's there? Or is it just a guess?

Yes, the honk is supposed to be a cute surprise. Don't believe that little truck driver, though, because he takes 3-martini lunches and drives around in the ocean a lot. He can even drive to Puerto Rico and Hawaii. :-)
Instead, click on the "Details" button, where you might see stuff like:
This is the true tracking info showing where the book has been. Note that some post offices mark it "Delivered" when it reaches the local post office, not your house, but if it says "Delivered", you should take a peek in your mailbox and see if it is there.
