Ordering from Amazon

Sarah C | May 17, 2001 11:01 AM

Last week I placed an order for three books from Amazon, using their service specifically to give the Chowhound board its cut. I paid $6.46 for standard shipping, and expected to receive the book here in the wilds of New Orleans by mid-week. (Yes, their order form indicates this can take 3 to 7 business days, but books ordered from Barnes & Noble often arrive the next day, due to being shipped from Memphis, so I thought 3 or 4 days would reasonable.) Having not received it yet, I tracked my order this morning to discover the following: Shipped from Reno on May 10; arrived in Salt Lake City May 14; arrived in Denver May 16; arrived in Dallas May 17 (12:06 a.m.); arrived in Mesquite, Texas May 17 (1:19 a.m.); shipped to Jackson, Mississippi May 17 (4:47 a.m.) . . . If all goes well I may receive my order early next week after it completes its tour of the U.S.

I'm sorry, but this is my last order with Amazon.
