Hi, I know I've seen this situation mentioned in here before but can't remember quite how to resolve.

I posted a book directly to another member's WL and then it was discovered to be a dupe for them.  I don't want it to go to the next person in line because it was part of a multiple order but don't want to have to cancel & disappoint next wisher either. 

Should the original member accept it or not?   I know I can't cancel it on my end at this point.

Seems to me I remember it involves me putting my acct. on Vac. Hold and then canceling it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated:)

Okay, I'm an embarrassed kitty:

She's already accepted and all I need to do is say "I can't mail it"...DUH!

It's been one of those days!   I'm laughing at myself:)

That works. 

I think you were thinking of the option of placing your account on vacation hold from the top of your bookshelf.  That would have kept it from rolling over to the next person if the wisher had canceled or not responded.
