Don't know if this has been a topic yet, if so I apologize for repeating. Two weeks ago C&T Pub. had a warehouse book sale. I ordered several books and have yet to see my order. Just wondering if anyone has gotten their order or am I just too eager. It was my understanding the books would be shipped in 2 - 7 days.

email them and ask them where your books are, could be they got swamped and are late posting them out.

if it took 7 days to get your order shipped out, which is very likely duing a big sale then it's not late at all. Unless it was shipped priority it can take another 7 to 10 days after it left the warehouse for it to get to you.

I haven't ordered from them, but have learned that 2-7 days is from the date the book leaves their warehouse. It could take a couple of days for that to happen. They also don't count weekends or holidays. Our postal service is slowing down too. Hopefully you will get it by Monday.

If they were shipped "book rate", it takes a long time...

They probably aren't late yet - but might not hurt to check on them. I had an order delivered to the completely wrong address last week, had to call fed-ex and report it missing...

If it's a book, they'll ship it "media mail" which is the cheapest way to ship, and also the slowest. Media mail goes behind everything else and is only handled when all the other mail is finished being sorted and handled. That's why it's so cheap.

Be patient, it'll probably arrive in it's own time. :-)

My friend and I ordered books and haven't received them yet either. The warehouse may have been swamped with orders and then there's the media mail shipping. Tomorrow will be two weeks so I expect them some time this week. I hope!! lol

The don't ship Media Mail, it's via FedExGround.
Two of my orders just came on Friday.
I'm still waiting for one more.
It's a huge sale and it just takes time.

Also, check your emails.
It's possible the books you selected were gone by the time they went to pick your order.
