Will you get a pop up message to alert you?

no, the system just thinks that you want a second copy.

I just tried it.  I ordered Ghost Soldiers by Hampton Sides and after I clicked the order button, there was a note stating You Have Ordered This Book Before on 12/8/05.

The system probably goes by ISBNs and I'm guessing  that if you order the same book but with a different ISBN, the system wouldn't catch that.

It apparently also goes by the first date you ordered the book as I've ordered multiple copies of Ghost Soldiers since I've been a member.
