I haven't received my book yet. I was wondering if I don't get it will I get my point back so I can order it from someone else?

Yes, you will.  The site gives the book about 26 days to get to you.  If it is a WL book you will go back on the list at #1.  If it isn't a WL book, and there are others in the system your order will go to the next person in line to send it out.


ETA- you will get your credit returned if you decide not to re-order the book after it's gone lost otherwise PBS keeps it until someone sends you that book or there is no other book in the system.

And don't give up on the book. I had a book marked missing a few days ago (I was the sender) and it was delivered today.

I had one take six weeks to get to the requestor and they were only one state over.  Of course, I've had some go cross country in two days also.  Pat
