Need some advice.  Just had a WL book go lost yesterday and now I have an offer for the same book.  I've had books show up after they've gone lost.  I don't want to order it and end up with 2 but don't really want to lose my place in FIFO by cancelling the offer.  What do others do?  Thanks!

That's tough!  If I were you, I'd wait another day (maybe see if your book arrives today) and if not, go ahead and order the second copy.  If you get two, you can always repost one.

I take the book as soon as it's offered to me.  If, by some chance, I end up with two books, I have no problem with that because it's a wishlist book and I can easily pass it on to someone else.

I've had that happen also, and I ordered the second one and ended up with 2. I gave the second one to a friend and we both had books to enjoy. I, personally, would rather have 2 of the same than none at all. Of course it would depend on how many credits I had at the time.

say yes and then repost it if the other comes thru.  it's WL, so you'll get your credit back.
