I received a book today that timed out from my request and was then placed on my wishlist so I'm guessing the book I requested was the only copy in the system. It just timed out a few days ago. I don't even know who sent me the book because until I got the paper off, I couldn't find the name of the person who sent it. What do I do now? I've never had this happen before.


Okay--I went to my transaction archive and this is what it said:


Mailed From:
Mailed To: PA

Request Date: 11/26/2008 9:05 AM ET
Date Accepted: 11/26/2008 10:11 AM ET
Wrapper Printing(s):

  • 11/26/2008 10:14 AM ET

Date Canceled: 12/2/2008 3:06 AM ET


So am I right in guessing the person just forgot to mark the book mailed? The strange thing was that the whole time my book was on the books I've requested part, I never once saw the accepted part come up.

Do I just mark the book received in my transaction archive because there is a button there. Or does the person who mailed it have to do something too? I'm guessing that she can't though because it's cancelled on her end.

The canceled transaction will be in your Transaction Archive. It should have a Was Book Received? button on it, which you can use to change it from "no response from sender" to "received". The sender will get a credit when you do this.
