I have a wishlisted book that has been mailed from AE. Where is that?

Does PBS operate in foreign countries and if this is the case, how long wil it take for the book to arrive?

Just wondering...

That is a US military address. PBS doesn't operate in foreign countries, but does allow our military stationed outside of the borders to be members.

It can take longer for books to get to these addresses, the system allows 35 days before marking a book lost instead of the usual 26.  I have only had one book sent to a APO address take longer than the 26 days, and not much longer. I usually use PBS postage on the those so I get the instant credit and tracking on the book.

It is a military address in the European area.  Whenever I get a military book request, I usually use PBS DC as the books sometimes take longer to reach their destinations.  However, I have had books reach the requester in as little as 7 days.  Good luck.  Pat
