On March 31st I ordered a book plus freebies from someone who was offering deals in the book bazaar. However, the status is still waiting for member. Should I send them an e-mail or wait another day? I don't want to come off as a pest. On the other hand, if you are offering deals because you want to move books, my thought is you would answer right away. What do you think? thanks:)

Did they ever confirm that they accepted your deal, like in the book bazaar or in a previous pm?  If not, then I would definitely go ahead and pm them and make sure it was still good.

And be careful not to let it go to the next member if they don't respond.

Are you sure it's with the same person? If you ordered it from the book description page it could have given the order to someone else, who thankfully isn't active. If it's the same person, I'd pm them with a polite reminder.  And keep a close eye on it so you can cancel if it times out and gives it to someone else.
