Bad Amazon

On May 20 2011 I've placed an order at Amazon for three books: C Programming Language (2nd Edition) The Design of the UNIX Operating System [Prentice-Hall Software Series] Operating Systems Design and Implementation (3rd Edition) The delivery estimate was set to June 20, 2011. Today July 30, 2011, the books did not arrived yet. I've contacted Amazon after June 20. Amazon asked me to wait until July 22. On July 25 they gave me total refund. Well, this is my first non success story about Amazon but I'm warned about no tracking information when using Expedited International Shipping. It is almost unbelievable. How can Amazon send $ 300 USD order without having tracking information? Yesterday I've ordered the same books plus other two. But this time I'm using the expensive Priority International Courier. The delivery estimate is: August 3, 2011 - August 9, 2011. Let's see if it will arrive this time. The new order: C: A Reference Manual (5th Edition)
