I just noticed that the book that I ordered from this person was not the book that was mailed out to me. Or rather I ordered Blow Me Down from Angela but that request was canceled and given to the next person in line with that book. So now I am getting Blow Me Down but not the bonus books that I was looking forward to. I wouldn't have spent one of my last 4 credits to get this book had the 3 for one not been so tempting. Anyone else having trouble hearing back from Angela? Is Angela even here? If there was some problem with the particular book I ordered I should have been notified so I could have canceled the order completely. Since this was a regular request book she had 5 days to decide to send it or not. As only one went by before it went to the next person I am assuming that Angela canceled it within a few hours of my request (one hour and 17 minutes to be exact)and sent to PM's or notification even on her thread here.

I know this is probably not the place to spread the dirty laundry but I think everyone should know what happened so they don't try to get the same deal I did.

I finally had to PM Angela about this situation. She messaged me back letting me know that she canceled the order because Blow Me Down was no longer on her shelf and I should have got that email and she was sorry that I missed it.

I had to inform her that when books have multiple copies in the system an email is not sent it just goes to the next book in line. For someone who has been here for over 2 years you would think she would know this.

It still doesn't look like she has come back to the forum...at least she hasn't posted anything. I am curious to know if everyone elses deals are going through ok.

I'm sorry you are upset Christina. All the other trades have been mailed and I also pmed all of the people who requested as soon as I got the requests and got them ready to mail. They should be getting them any day.

On these book offers, I keep wondering if it wouldn't be better to just order everything you want from someone's bookshelf, and then cancel the "freebies" after you've gotten an order confirmation back from the person offering the deals.  That would make it easier for everyone concerned, cut out multiple requests that range back & forth from inboxes to forum posts, since everything you order is pulled immediately from the bookshelf.  All that should be necessary is clicking on the button to PM the person you're ordering a book from & making sure it's the person offering the deal, and it didn't get shifted down to the next person in line who has the book listed.  Hard to say if this would be better or another nightmare entirely - one of the main reasons I don't post any deals is because it looks like they'd be a nightmare to track.

Kim, that is a good idea unless someone is low on credits and can't order 3 or want to order 6 and don't have 6 credits

I think this is the wrong place to discuss all of this and the wrong approach to a problem with a PBS member.

But to her defense, I ordered from her and while I haven't received my books yet (after all, it's only been a few days) I'm quite pleased with the transaction. Angela was polite and got back to me right away. I think she handled the message on here from the disgruntled person with much class. Kudos to her!!

I've been doing deals on Book Bazaar since I joined and have had very, very few problems. I don't believe anything needs to be changed.  But again, not the place or thread to diss the system.
