I know PBS recommends waiting a week or two to reorder a book that goes lost.   But, what are the chances that a book will turn up?

This is all I have on it.  The sender said it was mailed on 6/30.

It only has to be scanned on delivery so the fact that there's been no scan doesnt' mean it wasnt' mailed. If it's already gone lost you could shoot them a PM and ask if they mailed it late.  I would wait at least 2 wks before I reordered it though.  Some books have shown up months after going lost.

I did send the PM after it went lost on 7/27 and the sender confirmed that she did mail it on 6/30.

There are just a few copies in the system, so I am anxious to place the order.   But, if there is a chance that it will show up, I will wait it out.

This is my first lost book in 5 months of being a member.
