   I book I kind of need (You know, dieting for the new year hehehe) was supposed to be mailed out yesterday but it was not marked so I PMed yesterday wondering about it and have not heard back from the person. With it not being marked as mailed by the date it needed to be, what happens now?

 I know I could go look this up but I just have a feeling someone here will be faster knowing! Thank You!

Oh I had no idea! They have not responded yet and I know how it goes. I was just worried the system would cancel it and then I did not know if I needed to re-order or if it would move on to the next person who has it on it's own.

This is what is reads as:

Requested On: 1/18/09 1:02 AM ET
Printed On: 1/18/2009 3:13 PM ET
Will Mail by: 1/23/2009 11:00 PM ET

yes, they have until the 25th to mark it mailed  (I think 48 hours from the time they said they'd mail it) then, it will time out and go on to the next person that has the book available.

Correct.  You do not have to order the book again if the original sender does not mail it.  Your request will go to the next member who has a copy of the book.  If there are no copies available, it will automatically be put on your Wish List.

The system activity happens during the night so, if they don't mark it mailed before 3am on the 26th, the order will go to the next person in the system with the book or you will be put back in the WL line if there isn't another copy available. No action by you will be necessary.
