Yes! I have at least waited until one copy was enroute to me before ordering the secondcheeky

I have bought multiple copies of the same book on multiple books on the FOL sale. Last year  on the second day I went through them before paying and actually found 3 copies of the same book in my bag.

Nope.  I have done it before as well.  Don't feel badly!

Does ordering a book I already had count?

I haven't ordered two yet, but I came close to getting 2 sent.  I ordered a book from a member and she forgot to mark it mailed. PBS then ordered from the next in line who declined because of my RC. Since it was the only book in the system the buck stopped there so to speak.

I've done it.  The peril of having a large TBR.

I've done it.  The peril of having a large TBR. +1

I've gotten to the point where I can't remember whether I have a book between my own shelf, PBS shelf, and TBR.  I end up getting quite a few duplicates at FOL bag sales, but it's so cheap that I'll just post it or re-donate; not a big deal at all.  The real trouble comes with authors I'm collecting in hardcover, like Anne Rice and Stephen King.  Lugging those things home to find that I already have a copy is not fun.  I think I'm going to have to make a list to tuck in my bag next time I hit up a FOL sale.

My hubby wishes you were the only one that's ever done that!!! hahahaha, Seriously, he doesn't get too upset, but he does frown at me. I've done it at the same time only thru being a boxer. But, never in straight credit orders. Not to say I haven't done it, just that I haven't done it at the same time other than thru boxing. I probably do it once every other month or two.

I have never done that, either when I am ordering single books or boxing.  Oh, no.  I save it for books I order from Amazon.  I order a book for $15 to $30.  When I receive it, I go to shelve it and find that I already have a copy of that book.  AAaaaargh!

Yep, done all of the above!!!  I especially hate when I buy a new book and read a couple pages and realize I've already read it.  GRR
