I mailed 3 books on Feb 5 and found the following in the DC details:

  • 7/5/2003 7:06 PM - Enroute - SYRACUSE,NY
  • 2/2/2010 8:00 PM - Electronic Shipping Info Received - MARCELLUS,NY
  • 2/5/2010 1:20 PM - Acceptance - MARCELLUS,NY

Has anyone else seen a weird date such as the 7/5/2003 date above?

It's a little spooky.  Did my books just time travel backwards? LOL

By some chance were you mailing The Time Traveller's Wife?  Sorry couldn't resist! Snowbound for the fourth day is getting to me....

Most likely somebody has set the clock wrong on a computer or scanner.

LOL Linda.  Or maybe a Diana Gabaldon? But no, I didn't hear any stones screaming!

Cathy, you are probably right.

Yes, I have had a  book travel back in time, but it did eventually make it to my house, in this decade. 

I think it's just a computer glitch.
