    Longest darn time I've ever waited for a book!

    I ordered a book on December 30, 2003 from Amazon.com. It was the paperbound copy of a hardbound book (about Union cavalry in the Civil War) and I knew there would be about a 6-month delay before I received it, but I ordered it anyway. I received the book in the mail...yesterday!
    This ever happen to anyone else?

    Whew! Did Amazon give you any reasons for it, or try to keep you updated in any way?

    Did they make you pay for shipping? That's outrageous!

    For a couple of months, they did send me updates about delays in shipping, but then nada. It was just listed on my account as "not yet shipped" for almost two years. Then, out of the blue, an e-mail last week saying my order had shipped, followed by the book about four days later. Boy, it was weird! But at least they finally shipped the darn thing.
