Is there some reason I was not able to get a book after it said accepted. It appears they must of given the book to someone else.

The sender may have canceled - look at your Transaction archive and see if that's what happened.

Do you have requestor conditions?  They may have declined them. That ISBN you posted on another thread doesn't come up as a WL book.  If it was the only copy then you will have to either turn of your conditions or wait until other copies are posted.  If you didn't have RCS then the system should have reordered the book for you since it's not WL.

I find the credit registry to be a helpful place to look for details.  Items show up there before they show up in the tranaction archive.  Under My Account.

The system cancelled a whole bunch of book requests for timing out when they were days before timing out.
