Book was requested from me...  I accepted after physically finding it to give it a final condition check... put book with other books needing to be mailed... (couple days pass)  go to get book to wrap... not there!!!  I have checked everywhere!! Can Not find it!    So.... do I cancel or let it time out (of course I would notify requestor as to the reason).

off course I will find it after it's canceled...  crying

I'd  wait  a day or so it may turn up.  When I first joined  one of the first books ordered from me I couldn't find it.  I was all upset and canceled.  The next day my DD says oh I picked up this book to read is that ok.  UGH!

ROFL, I've so done that exact same thing Adrianne!  One I stalled and it turned up in time, the other I had to cancel and found it in my linen closet 4 months later  blush (hiding between the blankets).

it is so frustrating,     One surprise was that when I checked the detail page I found out it was a children's book and I was looking at mmpb's... so I thought I knew where it was, but alas, the book I thought it was had a different title (similar cover)...   grrrr  ... and still haven't found it  no

So.... do I cancel or let it time out (of course I would notify requestor as to the reason).

I would contact the requester and let them know the issues and cancel it. Then keep looking. When you do find it, be it 4 hours, 4 days, 4 months, you will still have the requesters name and you can contact them again and work it out to send it if they have not yet gotten a copy.

 

 With a house full of children here, my books to tend to get feet and move on me and can take a moment to find!

Denise, that's so funny!  I think I must remember you posting about that a couple of years ago, because I'll sometimes (jokingly) tell people to go look in the linen closet... that one member found her book there

yes
