Be sure you check what kind of shipping you are getting or class could be over before your book arrives. One problem with ordering physical books online is that the "standard" shipping is usually Media Mail, which the post office may take up to 14 business days to deliver.  That counts out to slightly more or slightly less than THREE WEEKS.  Media mail usually goes by truck.  The longest delay can be at your local post office, where the package is allowed to sit until the carrier has room on their vehicle and time to load it.  I've had Media Mail from the same shop take 2 days or 2 weeks.  Two days tends to happen if I'm on good terms with the carrier and the seller is in AZ, Texas or SoCal.  Priority Mail/First Class is faster, although starting January 16, 2016 the post office was averaging 8 calendar days for delivey.  Of course, ebooks are delivered immediately.
