What is the highest amount of books you have mailed out/received in one day?

With deals, the most books I have mailed out in one day was 10.

With no deals, the most I have mailed out is 7.

The most I have received in a day is 2.

I haven't done any deals yet, so the most I've mailed in one day was 5.

The most I've recieved is 9 in one day.

You can see the top 50 swappers by 7 and 30 days, and for all time under the community tab.  I sent out 19 in the last 7 days and 65 in the last 30 days.

With a two for one deal I ran I think I ended up sending out about 30 in one day - not counting the box of books I sent out the same day (close to 100 books in the box).

Not counting deals I think the most I've sent out is 9

I have gotten 6 books in one day (but I had my mail on hold while I was on vacation) otherwise it was 3.

One day I sent out to 6 people--a package of 6 books, a couple of doubles, and the rest singles. And that was just from 2 days worth of orders. I think that was my busiest.

As for recieved...I think 4.

I think I mailed out 30 one day when I first joined.  The most I ever received in one day was recently when I had 6 or 7 come at once.

Last summer, when I got back from vacation, I had 22 packages (with more than one book in some of them)  waiting for me to open!  That wasn't in one day, though.  I think the most in one day ahd been 5 or 6.  It's like Christimas!  LOL

I think I mailed out seven in one day, but four were part of a single deal.  I just got two in the mail monday, so that's my record there.

I have no idea! LOL I've sent out a lot of books over my 3 years here and I know after I first joined I was using a huge tote bag to haul all my books to the PO...I would deliberately hold back on some books and mail every day so I could manage to carry them. Those PO workers hated to see me coming, I tellya! I'd say it was probably 15 or 20 in one day but I really don't know for sure.

I think my 'record' for books received in one day was 14 from PBS, but I remember I also got an Amazon order on that day too so the total number was up over 20. It felt like my birthday, Christmas and the Fourth of July all rolled into one. LOL

A few weeks ago I mailed out 8 in one day.  None were part of a deal.  I was visiting my mother and she gave me a bunch of books (many that I had sent to her) to post, and they were all wishlisted books.   The most I have received in one day is 5.  Again, they were not part of a deal.

I mailed out 28 books in one day earlier this month, and now I am in the Top 50 for the past 7 days (near the bottom, but still . . .)

I don't recall the most I have received in one day.
