I understand the waiting for acceptance, waiting to accept to see if you have a credit come thru, and all the other reasons to wait to accept a book, but I am so frustrated here!! I have a (much wishlisted) Francine Rivers book that is now on the 4th or 5th person and still no reply. I understand the reasons this can happen, but it is maddening, because I want to mail some other stuff and don't want to make a trip to the post office just to come home and find that the book has been accepted. Arrggghhh.

What book is it, Pat?  If it's on my wishlist, I'd gladly accept right away.  :)

The book is "Unveiled" by Francine Rivers and I know it is fairly well wishlisted. I guess I will delay that Post Office trip another day or so. I have a Karen Kingsbury book (Sara'a Song) that I thought about posting but now I may have to wait for my next post office cycle, LOL. 

Brenda-- I saw that you like Orson Scott Card books. Have you ever read the Women of Genesis series. I just finished "Sarah" and I am now reading "Rebekah". They have been quite interesting.

Oh darn, I have that one already. 

Yes, Orson Scott Card is my favorite author--although sometimes when I read his blog, I get annoyed with his attitude, but his science fiction and fantasy are great!  I have read the Women of Genesis series.  I think they're good, and it does put an interesting perspective on some of the Biblical women.  Orson Scott Card is LDS, and I read the books back when I was LDS, so one of these days I want to go back and re-read the books, and see if he slipped any LDS theology into them (I wouldn't have noticed back then).
