Hi, all. I use PBS DC and I like to watch my books travel until they get to their destinations. (just some weird quirk of mine) Anyway, I have one book on its way from Indiana to Georgia, and it seems to have been in Cincinnati, Ohio, for 7 days now. I've not had a book get stuck enroute at the same place for 7 days before. Should I brace myself for the book to become lost?

I know I'll get to keep the credit, but it makes me sad when my books don't make it to their intended destinations to be loved anew by someone else. I feel bad for the PBS member who's waiting, waiting, waiting for that book.

Don't worry.  It may not actually be there - the USPS system plays a lot of "catch-up".

Ignore the truck. It has no basis in reality sometimes,

Thanks, Ladies. I'll just try to resist my urge to watch this book travel.  :-)

I had a book sent to me & it sat at one post office (or just wasn't scanned) from 3-25-09 until 4-19-09, when if finally arrived to me. So there's still hope!
