I ordered a book and it was shipped from Kansas on Tuesday the 15th. 

I live in NY and I got the book TODAY! 

Talk about FAST media mail!

On another note - another book was sent the same day from a few hours from me and that one will arrive later - strange, huh?

I just thought it was interesting!

Yes, the times are bizarre. I got one this week that took 2 days to get to me. Then the next day, I received one mailed 2-1/2 weeks ago. It's all over the place.

I think my PO is a secret supporter of PBS because my last 50 or so books have arrived at the destination within a week, no matter where they are going!  And not one lost book yet in over 100 transactions!  Go my PO!!

Lucky you. It seems that everything that I am mailing from Denver is going by tortoise. I am awaiting three books to be delivered.

It's really odd, isn't it?!
