Not sure how it happened but I marked the wrong book.  I did go back in and mark the correct book.  I guess I just hope and pray that the other one comes in good condition.

Nothing you can do to change it in the system.  However, you can PM the person whose book you inadvertently marked as Received to let them know what has happened.  That way, if something DOES happen to that book (arrives with a problem, goes Lost in the Mail, etc.) the Sender will not be hearing about it for the first time when you contact them about the problem. 

Also, the transaction record will then have a PM trail that the site admins can follow...

I know that frustration!  I have accidentally put down that I will "mail by" a certain date but I forget to drop the menu down to a later date.  And that's something else that can't be done again if you click on the wrong date.  I had to learn to pay more attention when clicking on things on here!

Might be a bit slow (Alaska is experiencing a harsh winter) but it should arrive just fine Margaret.  I've done this, and luckily the book I marked received in error arrived within the week.  Good luck!
