Depends on where you are located. PBS is set to Eastern time...my books are always marked an hour later than when I really mailed them (or requested them or whatever) because I'm in Central time. This post wasn't really made at 11:31 pm...it's only 10:31 here. :)

Well first, is it a book on your WL? On autorequest? Or is it a book you've ordered recently? If it's either one of those then when you ordered the book it went to Member A, who, at some point refused it, so it went to Member B during the night. And it seems as tho they declined to send it, so it moved your request to Member C.
Somewhere, either in your regular email, or your PBS transaction archive there should be mention of the name of the book. On your account page there should be a tab where you can see books you've requested. There will be a box off to the right that tells the time you requested it and it will say "waiting on member". Is this a book you recognize? Does it line up with one of the times you've been provided?
There's not a lot of info in your OP to go on, but that would be where I would start in figuring this out.
The times are in Eastern Time. For me, its a hour time difference. You must be in Mountain time since its two hours off. Just factor in -2 hours every time you see a time.
AGAIN i DID NOT AUTO REQUSTED THIS book yes it was on MY WAIT List
the system told me it was available and did I want it? I clicked yes,, then it went to waiting for member
then about few minutes later I got a message saying it couldn't be mailed and would you like it on the wait list?

this is so confusing!
What you are posting is confusing...
First: it seems i order the book at 12:04am But I ws asleep at this time!
Then: the system told me it was available and did I want it? I clicked yes
The only way a book could be ordered while you were asleep is if it was on AutoRequest.
If you had to accept the book, it wasn't on AutoRequest. Can't be both.
It seems like whichever way the book was ordered, the person canceled and it was passed on to another member. OR, after the cancellation, it was removed from the person's shelf, they reposted it and it was again offered AND accepted and they are now mailing the book to you.
Well the thing says 12:04 but for you it was probably 10:04. It's recording in Eastern Time. Maybe the person who posted the book accidentally canceled it after you accepted the WL offer. Then reposted it or something. It's only 9:19 where I am but the post will say 12:19. Which is kind of cool because if I wait until just after 9 to accept a book request, I get an extra to pop in the mail. Not that I make a habit of this.
