I received a book yesterday that was never marked mailed.   Supposedly it is to be mailed tomorrow.  I have pm'd the sender.  Is there anything else I should/could do?  I can't mark it received until it is marked mailed.

Sending the other member a PM was a good idea, hopefully they will mark it mailed. Just watch the date on the En Route to Me Tab on your Main page. If the date changes, that means the book has rolled over to a new member on the FIFO line. In that case you will want to cancel the order, so the next member who has the book posted doesnt send it also and you end up with 2 copies of the same book. You can then mark the book received from your Transaction Archive, and the member who sent it will get their credit.

Thanks, Cheryl.  At first I was afraid that had happened.  But, by checking names, it had not.  I'll keep a watch on that if my PM isn't answered.
