I had a book I ordered that never came and I have talked to the sender and she sent it I believe her but any ways it was lost now I have another book that has been in the mail over a week sent out the 9th still not here.

I have recieved many books with no problem then I recieved one that was ripped to pieces and now they are not getting here at all and I am begining to wonder if it is my post office and what can I do?

Penny, there is nothing at this point that you can do about the lost book.  Now as far as the one that was mailed on the 9th...patience...that is still a relatively short time and books can take up to 26 days to get to you that is why that is what is allowed by PBS.

The one that was ripped to pieces, you need to look at the way it was wrapped...that probably contributed to its demise.

No just the books and they were wrapped good there was two one was readable and the other wasn't it was like they got caught in the convyer belt. The one book that was lost wasn't a wish list but the one that was sent on the 9th is and the three I have coming are, so I was just worried.

I really want to get them and I am just hopeing they come and like I said I haven't had any problem since I joined and now I am and I can't figure out why.

Every now and again you have an issue...seems like yours came all at once.

If your other mail isn't screwy i am betting it's not the PO.
