How does the two for one deals work?  How does the person requesting the book know they are getting it from the person that is offereing the deal?  Doesn't the system work on a first in, first out basis?

So if I were to look at your bookshelf, and then requested a book, the request would go to you, and NOT the person that first posted the book?

These are books on shelfs and I guess that is true because you are requesting from that particular persons shelf. .  Never thought of it that way.

As long as you order it while on their shelf. If you order from the book description page or if the pop up book description is up it'll put it to FIFO.  But if you order the book while on the person's shelf than it'll go to them.  Always check the name by going to Order More From Member if you are ordering books from a deal.  Also keep an eye on deal orders. If the person cancels for requestor conditions or it times out it'll automatically reorder the book from someone not offering a deal. So you want to make sure you cancel it right away. 

The same applies to posting a WL book directly to someone.  Make sure you are not on the book description page. If you were on the person's WL their name should be at the top when you're posting the book. It'll say "You are posting this book to xxxx".  Posting from the book description will put it to FIFO.
