You have 5 days to accept a book request once it's made. So it actually works out better for you if they take longer to accept.  Because the 5 day clock starts once they do. So it looks like you'll be back before it times out.

If it ever happens that you would not be able to mail a wish listed book within a week after you get the request, the best thing to do is decline rather than negotiating a later mailing date. Your book will be removed from the system and the requestor will go back to #1 on the wish list.

If nobody else posts the book before you get home, you'll repost your copy and it will be offered to her again. If somebody else does post the book in the meantime, then the wisher will not have had to wait for you.
