A book I requested was declared lost in the mail.  The help docs say to PM sender and see if there was a delay in mailing.  So I did, and got a response fairly quickly.  The response came on a Saturday, she apologized something came up and she totally forgot to put it in the box and she would send it on Monday.  That was totally fine with me, things happen.  Anyway that Monday would have been April 7, it's now April 26.  What should I do?  I really want the book, but I don't want to end up with 2.  Should I PM her again or just order another and hope she didn't send it?

I'd PM her again and ask her if she mailed it as she said she would.  There is a chance if she did mail it that you'll get it in the next few days.  I had one I mailed first class to NJ on the 5th but for some reason it did not arrive till the 24th, though heavier media items mailed further away that same day arrived a week earlier.

Thanks Dawn, I'll try it.  I checked her profile and she has no books listed and only one on her WL, so I'm thinking she probably is not going to send it.
