I just looked at my transaction archive.  The newest thing on it is a book with an X and it says "Request cancelled by requestor."   However, this book is not on my shelf and never has been.  In fact, it's a book that I've never read.  How can that be?

Was it possibly you requested from someone else and THEY cancelled?

You can click "Request Details" (on the right side of the row) to get more info.

 

The only two ways you could get a request cancelled by requestor is if you requested it from someone and then changed your mind and cancelled, or if someone requested it from you and then cancelled.

 (Edit because I mixed up left and right - it's what happens when you type near a mirror)

Bernhard - how are you doing?  Interesting to see you on the boards.  I didn't realize you hung out here!  I sent you a book not too long ago. I live nearby.  Hope you are doing well!

Hi Ruth.  PM on its way.  :)

Okay, my fault.  I guess that I misunderstood.  I think that I did request it as an "Order more from Member" and then just realized that I had recently received it.  So, it wasn't requested from me.  Too many books, too much reading (well, that's not possible), and I am not good with remembering the names of books that I'm reading, much less the names of some books that I want.  This one happened to be by Anita Shreve and I've been requesting most of hers that I haven't read.

Sorry for the confusion.
