Tonight I had 3 books requested from me, but I never got an e-mail that the books were requested like I always have in the past.  I checked under Club Communications and no "Book Requested from you" emails were sent.  I checked my settings, and I still have it set to receive all PBS emails, every type.  ANyone know if this is a change, or if something's going on?

I think the e-mails are really slow tonight. I just got the e-mail about a PM that I received three hours ago.

same here - I had a couple of transactions and a few PMs today for which the emails were about 3 hours late. I think they're still trickling in and I've already handled all of them.

Of course, I had to go running off to see if this happened to be true for me.

Nope, but I see a WL book of mine was posted, so that was a nice surprise.

Sometimes that happens to me, too...but mine always shows up in club communications...I think that sometimes it's a problem with my roadrunner service.

I've had this happen on occasion.  I never receive the "book requested" notification but do receive the cancellation on the request due to me not responding.  Its happened 4 or 5 times over the past 6 months.  I chalked it up to cyber-twilight zone stuff and try to remember to log at least once a day.

This happened to me, also.  The email finally arrived about 6 hours after the request.

Yep, I think it was just that their outgoing e-mails were slow last night. I usually get the daily digest and daily wishlist e-mails which show up sometime in the middle of the night, but the daily wishlist e-mail didn't show up until much much later this morning.

Yep, all the emails arrived eventually, just late.
