I went to order a book today and the system cheerfully informed me that I had already ordered a copy of that book last month!  I'm glad that they are so on the ball.  I need all the help I can get remembering what I have ordered.

My misfortune that it didn't tell me that last week. I probably got the first copy in a box trade, and those don't kick in that wonderful little warning.

Neat stuff, Kate.  I have seen that yet.  Makes me want to go out and try reordering some books, just to see it for myself. :-)

That's cool that PBS reminds not to duplicate, but what about a book you ordered and now can't find.  Now I have to reorder.  I need PBS to tell me where I put the book.

You can still order it, Donna, it is just a reminder on the screen so that you know you are ordering a duplicate. I ordered a book for my self and another for my son. The second time it told me I'd already ordered it, but let me go ahead and do so. The only flaw is that it doesn't track books ordered thru box of books or deals. There's probably no way for them to make it do so, but it sure would save me some frowns from DH when I order a duplicate :)

Is that a new feature?

So true, Donna -- and then maybe it can also tell me where I put my keys, my glasses, my phone...

NOT a new feature but one I love.  I often can't remember what I've ordered.  Heck - I can't remember what I had for lunch yesterday.  lol   I NEED the help.
