Night Shift was late by about a week. I don't know what is going on. To make it odder according to tracking they delivered the 2 books at 2 different times on the same day.
    Around here the USPS appears to be running multiple trucks to the same address and trucks on Sundays to catch up. I recently had a package dropped at my door about 7:30 AM and another delivered to the parcel box around 2:00 PM on the same day as well as a package delivered to my doorstep on a Sunday morning. I am now caught up on all but one package I am expecting. The one outstanding is my recent Lividian chapbook. Brian shipped it on December 5th and it remains in a Pre-Shipment status with USPS. Having worked with retail logistics for a long time I am guessing it is in a trailer at a post office and they will eventually open that truck and send it on the way.

    Don’t give up hope yet. In the last month I have had packages not get updated until they were delivered. The post office is still slammed . Some of those packages were shipped Media Mail and were 4-6 weeks from order to arrival

    As of today (1-2-21) I still have not received a shipping notification.
    Yep. Lots to go yet. I don't think we'll be done shipping until next week. With the holidays being right in the middle we've only really had about 8 business days worth of shipping so far, and as I've said elsewhere it's a much slower process this go around.

    I got a shipping notice today, so I'll be keeping an eye on that tracking number!

    I ordered a book on Amazon for a friend that was supposed to be delivered on 12/18, and finally got delivered today. It went from Richmond, VA to the suburbs of Philadelphia, and took that long to get there. The USPS is really overwhelmed right now.
    Yep . I sent a package out on the 18h and the last scan it shows is when it left my local post office that night. I was told yesterday by a postal clerk that things should get a little bit better by the end of January. He also told me that since April and because of COVID it’s been like Christmas month for the last 8 months

    USPS Priority. I figure I can give it another week or so before worry will really start to set in.

    My gift edition arrived lightning-fast, within one week - and I'm in the Netherlands. Usually, when USPS takes care of shipping, this takes a minimum of double the time, two weeks at least. Please do use FedEx again whenever shipping another CD treasure my way....

    Which shipping service? I've had a couple shipments that were multiple packages where 4 of 5 boxes were delivered, but the last box got stuck in transit somewhere. Right now until we get a week or two past the holidays I'm going with the assumption that nothing is lost, it's just stuck in a backlog. For FedEx and UPS packages I think if they still haven't been delivered next week then it's time to start digging. USPS stuff I just don't know. They're soo backed up that it could take awhile. I have packages from the beginning of December that still have not been delivered yet.

    I have a book that was shipped to me from neighboring Indiana via USPS Media Mail on December 8. It has been stuck in the distribution center in Hazelwood, Missouri since December 16. I remain hopeful that it will eventually arrive.

    I'm not sure if you are aware of this but you can actually block specific accounts from bidding on your eBay items. Just go to this page on eBay and add their ID to the blocked buyer list.

    Thank you. I didn’t know that. One less headache to worry about
