One of the books that I sent that was lost was a very favorite one of mine. The guy who requested it from me was really looking forward to receiving it. When we finally decided that it was lost, I felt just as bad for him having to wait longer, as I did for me losing the point.

Slowly and surely wins the race.

I guess that is why I often get books sent to me with so much tape on them that the package is just about laminated solid. It used to annoy me since it takes awhile to get into them, but now I know they were just making sure it got there.

How sad. I have had a few get lost on their way to me. Most recently, this week, one showed up that had not been taped well and was coming apart all over. The post office retaped in places. Unfortunately they also taped the book. I usually pay the extra for the del. confirmation. I know a lot of people don't do that but I am always paranoid.
Hopefully it won't happen often.

I have had 2 books lost in the mail. The first one was a really nice music book. I did get part of the label back so I was able to get my postage back from the PO. I decided that I had not adequately wrapped it so ever since, I have really made sure that I use PLENTY of tape on the wrapper. When the second one was lost, I figured that someone just wanted a book because I know the address was readable and the wrapper was not going to give way.
I did not get the label back on that one so I was out the book and the postage.
It doesn't happen very often though, thank goodness.

ok not loss as in people but i had the first book ever in which i've sent it out and it never was recieved by the person i was sending it to. I almost had a near miss once with one I was recieving but it came a few days later than the estimated arrival time. Still a bummer lost credit for me.
