I recieved a request for a book that I don't have listed and I double checked 3 times . There must be a glitch. Anyone else have this issue today?

Well, the book would no longer show on your Bookshelf if you have a request for it, but I have seen the same thing reported in the past.

I did just find a book posted on my Bookshelf that I didn't recognize and don't remember posting, but I just figured I must have been testing something that day in order to answer a LH question.

I had this happen to me last week. In my case, it was the same book but a different ISBN. I pmed the requestor and told her what happened and she wanted the book anyway. It worked out for me, but wouldn't have if I didn't have the book at all.

I knew it had to be a glitch as I always put a post-it note on all the books that I post. This book did not have a post-it note on it, so it surprised me when it came up as a request.

I did not recognize the title, but I will go look in my (actual) box as opposed to my PBS bookshelf. Good point Melanie, Duh.
