When I try to PM any member who is sending me books, I get a recommendation screen:

Call of Adventure Collier's Junior classics The Young Folds Shelf of Books

with an uneditable subject line of  JK H. has suggested a book for you!

For a book already in the mail, looks like the PM button is working okay.

But for those 'requested', mine has the same type message " Cindy R. has suggested a book for you!" in the subject line, but blank books at the top of the screen.

Something's certainly going wonky there!

I noticed that as well. I just go to their profile & PM from there.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. I guess that's one way to get those book recommendations going! :)

I had noticed this yesterday.  Today, though, I went to send a message despite the book recommendation and it went to a basic PM setup (no book recommendation, but no paragraph about Requester to Sender communciations like before either), so it looks like they're addressing the issue :)

Actually, I sent a bug report before I posted here. it's a true bug and not a complaint.

Like they say at the veterinarian when I bring them a second-hand dog or cat that I've acquired:

"It's fixed already!" :)
