I received a book and marked it as received no problem. Then realized they sent me the wrong book. I sent them a note saying it's the wrong book but how do I change my response with Paperbackswap.

the short answer is you can't change your response with PBS

Only PBS could do that.  And I've never heard of them doing it.

Do make sure that when you PM the sender that you do it from the transaction archive page.  That way a record will be kept.

If it was a wish listed book, PBS is able to put you back at the top of the list.

Unfortunately, once you have marked it received, you cannot change that.

But sometimes we have to carefully review what we recieve before we log on.

If it was totally the wrong book, here's some helpful info on how to get this straightened out:

I received a book I didn't request

She may have been mailing out two books, and switched wrappers.  If so, she can give the person who got your book a credit (to cover postage) and your address, and ask her to mail the book to you.  She can also give you a credit to mail the book to the right address.
