I thought when you ordered a book the other person had to say yes or not the the accecpt. I ordered a book on the 19th and it says they have till the 24th  at 10.25 P.M.. I thought after 48 hrs it got passed on to someone else if they didn't acknowledge it.

48 hours is for a WL book, if it's one they ordered and not on their WL then they have 5 days to respond.

From the Help Center:

The sender has 5 days to respond to your book request. If the sender does not respond (or if the sender declines the request) the system will automatically pass your request to the next member offering the same book.

The sender has 5 days to respond to your book request. If the sender does not respond (or if the sender declines the request) the system will automatically pass your request to the next member offering the same book.

...

What if the sender does not respond within 5 days?

  • If there is another copy of the book available:
    • your request will automatically be passed along to a new sender. 
    • This will happen at the end of the 5th day  (in the middle of the night)
    • You will not get an email notifying you if this happens.
  • If there is not another copy of the book available:
    • the request will be canceled
    • you will get your credit back
    • the book will go onto your Wish List automatically. 
    • You will get an email notifying you if this happens.
