Yes. If you do not request the book within the time allowed, you will lose your spot in line. If I were you, I would go ahead and request the book that was offered to you. If both books eventually show up, you can post one of them.

For future reference, when a book goes lost, and is placed on our wish list, we can put the book on individual wish list hold for a few weeks until we're pretty sure the original book is not going to show up.  The individual wish list hold means we keep our spot in the wish list line, but aren't offered the book until we take it off hold.
