How can I find out who offered me a book??? I was offered a wish list book, it was marked printed but never marked mailed.  I just noticed that the book is now being offered by someone else.  I would like to pm the first person to make sure the book was not mailed, before I take this second book.  I checked my transaction file and it does not show the persons information so I can pm them.

It's in your transaction archive.  When you click on details, it should allow you to send them a PM.

Thank you,  I sent a pm to the sender asking her to please let me know if the book was mailed. I just checked and she did read the pm but still has not let me know.  I don't want to accept the second book if the first is on its way.


Oh why do people do this sort of thing???  LOL

If she hasn't responded and the request is about to time out go ahead and accept the new request.  If you end up with two copies of the book then you are not obligated to send a credit to the first member because they did not mark mailed on time.

How do you tell if someone has read your PM?

not a 100% way to determine...I read PM's in the email that I get so only once a month or so do I go to my PM's click select all and dump them...so, it may or may not have been read.

If its still indicating that the PM was not read, then there's no way to determine if it been read via email, but if it is indicating the PM has been read then you can be 100% certain that the PM was at least opened on PBS.
