Is there a way I can track the progress of the books I've mailed as they travel to their desitnation? I know I can track books coming to me I'd just like to know how close the books I've mailed are to reaching their destination.

Only if you send using delivery confirmation. And then, only if they are scanned during their journey.

Do you mean delivery confirmation from the post office or from the bar code on the PBS label I can print out and wrap the book in?

I believe the delivery confirmation you purchase from PBS is the only one that is trackable through PBS.  PBS has no way of linking to any DC that you buy at the post office.

You can also track the number at USPS.com & have the PO automatically email you it's progress (for free).
