I was offered a wl book, happily accepted and it was accepted. I saw the dates of printed, would be mailed by 3/22. Today it's cancelled and then re offered by the same person. I don't want to cancel, I'm 1st in the wl line. 

I'm thinking that this must be that glitch where you post to someone but it's going fifo. I know it's a glitch but I wish it would be honored.

I also don't want to be in an endless loop of it being offered, cancelled, etc until the glitch is fixed.

Suggestions?

PM the person who keeps posting it to ask them if they are trying to post it to another WL. If they are, let them know it is not working right now. If it happens again, report it to PBS since they may keep track of how many times a poster cancels and in this case, it is not their fault.

Thank you..it stinks for both of us. She has to cancel and if the book is offered while I'm in this loop, I miss out on it.

I did send her a pm yesterday though :-)

Thanks for your help!
