Sorry if there's an easy answer here, but I'm not sure what to do. I posted a bunch of books on my bookshelf, and got a request to send 3 of them. I accepted the requests and printed out the mailing wrappers, but then got called out of the country on business. The time to send the books ran out, and I was never able to send them. I PM'd the requestors to let them know, but now don't have the books on my bookshelf anymore, even though I never sent them. Is there any way to get them back on my bookshelf? Or do I just re-enter the information?


Thanks for your help!

You need to add them to your bookshelf.  I would definatley cancel the books next time and if you can't send a email to TPTB so they can do it in your for you.

You'll have to repost them. When an order times out, the books are removed from your shelf.

They were removed from your shelf when the books timed out.  You need to repost them.

They will suspend your account if you make a habit of letting book requests and WL offers time out like that.  So next time cancel them yourself and put your account on hold. Or use the printed postage and stick them in your mail box or the blue box on your way out of town.  But cancelling is better than letting them time out. When you let them time out the system puts up a red flag that your account might be abandoned.
