If microcode is referring to USPS Media Mail delivery

aware that it can definitely take the better part of a month to be
delivered. I ordered a book from a seller (different service than abe)
and they shipped it media mail. It took upwards of three weeks, and was
not the right book(very similar title, same author/publisher, so mistake
seemed honest enough). Shipped it back, and then they shipped the right
one. It took almost two months to get what I ordered.
I'll always be paying an extra $10 for faster shipping --- whether the
book is a $4.00 book or not.
The shipper was only located a few states away on the East Coast. I
joked about being able to walk the distance in a shorter time.
It continually amazes me that that organization is still in business.
It surely wouldn't be if the gov't wasn't propping it up.
