This is the first time this has happened to me so I am wondering what happens next.

I ordered a book. It was accepted almost immediately. It was supposed to be mailed by 6/25 but it is still not marked as mailed. The help section states that the request will automatically go to the next person who has the same book. However, it has been 2 days since it was supposed to be mailed and it still shows up on the books that I've ordered. I really want this book because the 2nd one in the series has already been mailed (by someone else) but I won't be able to read it until I get the 1st one. What should I do?

You don't have to do anything. The member has 2 days after the mail by date to mark it mailed. If it does not get marked it will move on the the next member.

Oh, ok. I just didn't know how long I had to wait for it to be passed.

It is annoying when that happens. I've had the same book go from person to person meaning I'd wait & wait seeing each one never marked mailed. Annoying. lol

I understand we all have a life outside Paperback swap but I always take the time to let the person know when I can mail it. I'm always eager to get my books so I would like to know.

It's even worse when it is part of a series! I just started #1 in a series one time and went ahead requesting #2. This request went from person to person forever it seemed! lol
