What do I do if a book was supposed to be shipped to me yesterday and it still hasn't been marked as shipped?

they have 48 hours after the date to mark it mailed.  they may have forgotten but should get reminder emails from PBS asking if the have mailed it.

If they don't mark it mailed you'll go back to the top (or near the top) of the line for that book. 

It is possible that they mailed it but forgot to mark it mailed, can't access PBS to mark it mailed or have other issues that came up.

The book must be marked mailed by 2 days after the mail-by date chosen.   The deadline is at the end of the second day after the mail-by date. So at about 3am on the morning of the 29th, if the order has not been marked mailed, the system will cancel the request and it will move on to the next person offering the book.
