I mailed 5 1st class books on 4/11; 3 have arrived, but 2 are still not marked as received. Any ideas as to why? MM I can understand, but not 1st class!    M'ann

I live on the West Coast and thought mail service has been espcially quick lately, both first class and media mail.  I've attributed it to the USPS trying to look good for the upcoming rate increase.

PS - I switched to DC just to avoid the stress of these things.  Now I can tell when books are delivered even if receiver forgets to log them in.

I just got a FC package from Michigan today that had been mailed late Monday evening.  Two days, door to door isn't bad.
