I believe you just have to wait it out then refuse to accept the order.  : (   Not your fault, just a mistake.

Wow, I just did the same thing.  I feel so bad, since this book has a pretty long wish list.  I hope no one gets upset, when I have to cancel it.  :(

I don't understand how people do this--to put a book on your TBR you go thru one screen--put in the ISBN and you are done.  To put a book in your inventory you have to put in the ISBN, then verify it is the correct book, then verify it meets PBS guidelines.  Big difference in processes.

I've done it before, too, and have heard similar stories from lots of members, Paula.  :)

I did that, not thinking just posting my books in the system. I was lucky the ones I listed were not on WL. Whew! Just explain you made a boo-boo by posting them when you meant to put them on your TBR. OOPS!
