    I really, really, really, enjoy tracking a book order. Mine is a rather straight shot, so its not very complicated. I'll go first.

    -My amazon order of What in the World is Going On? by Dr. David Jermiah has just hit the road.

    So, where is your book in transit?:flowers:

    Because I get my Amazon books sent by Standard International post tracking is unavailable.

    I presently have 5 books on the way. One of them should arrive this week.

    Looks like mine has to do a sling shot pattern before it reaches me.

    One of my books is Lost in Spaaace:sad: I bought it on Amazon Used, and the sellar sent me a message that it was mailed July 12...shoulda been here between July 17 and August 3. So I emailed her and when she checked with the USPS, they couldn't tell her where it is. So I got a refund, and my book is out in limbo somewhere.
    The other two are also on order through Amazon Used, so I have no idea where they are or when they'll arrive. I'll just keep watching the mailbox...just like the good ol' days:lol:

    I know how you feel abecedarian. I got a book on eBay quite a few years back. It took just short of two months to get from upstate New York to the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania. Of course it was sent Media Mail. Sometimes I think the USPS just doesn't care. I also was sent a book through BookMooch. It's three and a half months since it was sent and I still don't have it.

    At least the two I posted about yesterday showed up early this afternoon. :D

    I've purchased used. The seller did not provide me with the tracking number. I just wait til it gets here.

    Sadly, I have none on order at the moment. I have been making do with the books I got for Christmas since I got laid off a few months ago. I should have a job (finally!) by the end of the week and I already have my amazon cart loaded and ready. Thank God I get 20-30 books each year for Christmas!

    in between books... waiting on the mailman
    I bought a couple rare books a few years back from Abebooks and they never arrived. Interestingly, a new used book store opened up a few blocks from my house a couple months later and I found a copy of both books there.

    Coincidence? :rolleyes:
