Were you the sender or receiver?

I don't think you can.

If there are more copies in the system, the order passed to the next person in FIFO.

If there aren't any copies in the system, when you re-post the book to your bookshelf, if the book has returned to someone's Wish List, it will be re-offered to them. If the book returned to someone's Reminder List, then they may re-order it themselves.

If you contact PBS, they might be able to put your book back in FIFO, but I doubt they will re-instate the old order. Although it never hurts to ask, I guess.

I actually did this not too long ago.  I wasn't sure the process back then and I was told just to remeber to re-add the book.   So I think you just go back in the FIFO line.  I canceled instead of printing the wrapper so it was in my transaction archive and I was able to PM the sender and let them know the mistake so they were aware it was going through someone else.  Best you can do.

I also once hit cancel by mistake instead of print wrapper. Luckily my book was the only copy in the system, so I added it again and then contacted the other member who requested it a second time. If there had been even one more copy of the book in the system, I'd have been out of luck.
