I just went to order a book that had several different copies in the system.  When I hit the "Order this Book" button, there were two buttons on the next page.  One said "Order more from Member" and the other said "Process Order".   I don't remember this being the way it worked before.   I even remember asking them to do an upgrade so that we can look at a member's shelf before ordering the book so we could find a member offering the book that had other books I was interested in.  If this is an upgrade, I like it!

This has been a site feature since I became a member in 2007.

It looks the same to me. I almost always check out "Order More from Member" before clicking on"Process Order."

One thing that did change on that screen not so long ago is the ability to turn your RC on or off before placing the order. I like that feature a lot.

I love the Order More From Member feature!  I love to check out other people's bookshelves, especially when I know they have had books that I'm interested in (as evidenced by the order I'd be in the middle of placing at the time I'm checking out this feature!)

Boy, I must be losing it because I have never seen it that way before.  I even wrote them and asked for that feature.  Actually, now that I think about it, I asked for something slightly different.  I wanted to be able to bypass the first in the FIFO list and go to the next so I could see the next person's bookshelf.  I think the reason why this seems different to me is that there were so many versions of the book available, allowing me to see different member's book shelves.

I think I'm suffering from "Old Timer's Disease".
