The site underwent changes and a few people had that happen.  I'm not sure what they did.  PM a Tour Guide and ask for help!

look in your email spam folder.

Go to your "my account" page, and look on the horizontal yellow bar for your "club communications".  If the message about the book request is in there, then the e-mail was sent by pbs.  So at that point you have to figure out what your e-mail provider did with it.  Checking your spam folder is a good place to start.

Here's a help doc that offers a number of ideas: <a href="http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/search.php?terms=not+getting+e-mail">link</a>

And if you have a Yahoo e-mail address, there's a fix set up in this <a href="http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=130997&l=25&ls=0#r">thread</a>.  Scroll down to the 4th post, by Len S.
