Hi! PBS double listed my books this weekend. They are all WL books and people have requested them. I cancelled the 2nd requests for books, but one lady ordered the book twice.

How can I cancel one book order without the other? She is afraid to lose her place in the WL. Any ideas? Wrote to PBS but did not hear back.

When you cancel one, it should not cancel the other. As long as the requesters accept and you cancel the extra it should be OK. The requester shouldn't cancel anything because that will just offer it to the next person in line.

I agree with Melanie.    But JIC, make note of the members name.  If the transaction totally cancels you can contact PBS or just post the book directly to her wishlist.

If you cancel and order, it will keep her place in the WL line too.
