Personally, I would just let the site run it's course. Even if you do end up with 2 books, you can always repost the second one.

Also, you may never get the first one that was "lost," so I would just wait.

If the sender cancels, then he/she will have to repost the book and it will be offered to you again. Unless you have some requestor conditions that the sender can decline, he has no way to get past you on the wish list to the next person who's waiting.

Go ahead and ask them to accept the book request and then cancel it-then put your account on hold. Or put up temporary conditions like "if this is xxx book-please decline for conditions as I am hoping a lost one will arrive" or something.  Then when they repost it'll either go to the next person because you are on vacation or they can decline for RCS.  How long is the WL line?  If it's short you can just cancel and get at the end if the other book doesn't show up.  Although I wouldn't want to do that if it's a oop/htf find book that doesn't get posted often.

I have a WL book enroute to me that I have several other copies of on my WL.  I just put my account on hold.  If it goes lost then I can save my place in line.  If it shows up then I can just delete them all.
