I had previously ordered a wishlist book and it has come up lost in the mail.  Another copy just became available.  What would happen if I declined this book to see if the other one showed up or should I just take the chance of having two of the same book?  I don't want to loose my place in line if I decline the one that just became available.

I would accept it.  Even if you do end up with 2 copies, if it is a wishlisted book, you'll be able to repost the extra one right away.

It's my understanding if you decline the book you get bumped off the wishlist. I'd go ahead and accept it too - repost one if you end up with two copies.

Yes, if you decline a WL request, you get removed from the list and lose your place.  I agree with the others - go ahead and order it - if you get 2 copies, just repost one - since it's WL'd it should be requested quickly.

Well PBS put you back on the WL so I would except the 2nd book.  As the others said if the 2nd one happens to show up, if it's a WL book you can post the extra one right away and get a credit for it.
