I ordered a book, but the sender sent me a PM stating that there was a slight problem with it,  and I declined  and canceled the order (probably shouldn't have and should have let it time out) but when I try to order the next in line of course I can't.  What do I do now? 

1.  Reorder the book with a RC that precludes this particular problem   OR

2.  Keep checking to see if that book gets ordered and then order the next in line?

 

Thanks.  Pat

Tell the sender you don't want their book b/c it doesn't meet PBS guidelines and ask them to de-post it so you can order a copy that does.

They probably won't, but it's worth asking. Sticking RCs on it increases the chance the next person will turn it down b/c they don't understand them (or just don't like RCs).

You could ask here to see if someone else has the book you want and if so, you could order it directly from their shelf.......that's what I would do.  I bet you will find a copy that is in the right condition (or better!)  What is it, maybe I have it!!!

It's a children's book and there's just one other like it.  Thanks.
