I've gotten a requested book and I actually received this very early...I've had it a couple of days waiting, but no button appears for me to click on so the sender can get their credit .


Now what do I do?

did they mark it mailed?  it sounds like maybe that is the problem

PM them and ask if they marked it mailed so that you can mark it received and they can get their credit!

Yes, and stay alert -- if they didn't mark it mailed, and the deadline passes, the system will pass your request on to someone else, and you probably don't need 2 copies of the same book.

In fact, click the PM button on your current request, and see if it's with the same person on the return address label.  You may already have a new request going.

Check out this help doc: I got a book I requested, but I can't mark it received!

Ok I've done what you have both suggested, I think that the problem is that the member has until the 28th to mail this book and they mailed it very early.  Hopefully the PM will help because no, I do not want 2 copies of the book*chuckle*.  Thanks for the advise!
