I received an email a few days ago saying a book I requested had been mailed. The strange thing is that that book title is still listed on my "Books I've Requested" tab and didn't move to the "En route to Me" tab.

If it was mailed it would be on your "en route to me" tab. I have received PBS emails that have been wrong also.  Look at "details" and you should be able to see when it was accepted and if it was printed and mailed.

The book wouldn't show up as "en route" until the person sending the book marks it as sent.

I have received books a couple of times and had to PM the sender to mark it as mailed so that I could mark it received so they could get their credit.  Sometimes the sender forgets to mark the book sent which will mean it will not show up on the en route tab until they do.

  Until the person that receives your book marks it as receieved ,then will it say "en route to me .



All take a look at my book shelf , books mailed out in 2 days , generaly the same day requested . Wrapped good .

It could be that the sender printed out printable postage and delivery confirmation and then mailed the book, but forgot to click the button confiming that they mailed it.  Just a thought...
