I ordered some books online and selected the standard regular shipping. Is it going to take a month like traditional "ground" or a week like priority mail?

THANKS!

Generally speaking, it's shipped priority mail. I usually find the tail end of their estimates to be pretty close to the truth.

3-5 business days == 5 business days or thereabouts

Delivery March 22nd-26th == March 26th or thereabouts

eBooks take about 20 seconds.

PS. You can buy your eBooks locally at Undercover Books.

I bought kindle books and "real" books from Amazon all the time. Kindle,of course, was immediate. Mailed was always priority mail and arrived within the time frame stated. I love Amazon!!

I buy used books via Amazon and they are mailed under 'media rate' which is dirt cheap but can take anywhere from a week to a month to arrive. Kind of fun to get a surprise package at some indeterminate point in the future. 😎

FYI if you guys don't know this but if you buy from the market place sellers, which are the people selling used books look for the ones that say domestic AND international shipping. It is just the way Amazon has it set up. If you put a book in your cart that says domestic shipping you get a weird message but Amazon does not let you know what you did wrong. Anyway this is how it is in PR.
