I had a book on my wish list, got the "wish granted" note, yippee gonna get my book.  Then yesterday got a note that  the person with the book couldn't find it. darn! So back on the wish list,  got a note this am that the book was available from someone else, yippee again!  Then I got a note that the first person found the book, I canceled the second book in order to get from first person, now I'm wondering if I did the wrong thing.  I looked and the first guy is not listing the book on his bookshelf, so I can't order it, what do I do......just forget the first guy and reorder the book again, or can I even do that since I canceled the order?????   Help    Hugs Pat

Pat,

I think that without trying you moved yourself to the bottom of the WL because you cancelled on the second guy.  If the first guy found his book he can post it directly to your WL, but if he just posts it back in the system, it will go automatically to the next person in line.  I hope that explains it.
