I requested a book and the person accepted and printed it on the 6th it still is not marked mailed. How long will it stay that way before it get removed and I am offered the next in fifo????

 

and also remember to check your shelf for books you no longer have. I just worked out a deal ordered the books and then was told she no longer had the books but would send me some of her choosing. ( I don't think so) . This is the third time this has happened to me.

It would depend on what mail by date they chose.  You get 5 days to accept a request and then it lets you choose a mail by date up to 5 days after that, then it gives 2 days to mark the book mailed after that. I always choose the 5 day mail by option.  Sometimes I'll print and wrap the book on the 1st day. But it might take me a few days to get it to the Post Office.  I might just be busy, I might have WL books pending that I want to mail at the same time, I might have a kid come home from school sick and stay that way for 4 days.  You never know.

Are you sure it is on the same person? They should have 7 full days at the longest before the system cancels for not marking it mailed. If they accepted and printed on the 6th it should have been cancelled and rolled to the next person last night. Are you sure someone else didn't accept and print before you saw it this morning?

Duh.  I wasn't paying attention to the date.  Yeah it should have gone to someone else by now.
