I send and receive quite a few audiobooks on PBS. Today I got an audiobook in the mail that was missing tapes. How should I mark this received? I've never had this happen before.

Thanks in advance!

Hm..  I had an audiobook one time where the box had the incorrect number of tapes listed.  I listened to all the ones it came with and the story ended.  But the box had a cassette number 2 higher than what it actually was.  I just wanted to point that out.  I guess the way to do it is to mark the book as received w/a problem. Then pm the person and ask for your credit back or see if they have the missing tapes.

Thanks! This one has Tapes 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7. =(  Oh well. I understand that these errors can happen. Hopefully I'll get my credits back.

yeah there's definately one missing there. Mine had like 1-7 but the box said 9 or something like that.  The complete story was on the cassettes.  Maybe they have the cassette and can just send you the one that's missing.

Thanks Mary! Either way would be fine with me. It looks like this set may have been purchased at a yard sale or a FOL sale because it has $1.00 written on it. I know how easy it is to buy an audiobook without double-checking  ... I've almost done that myself.

I'm so worried about sending one out with missing cassette or CD that I check them like 4 times before I finally package them up.  Once before I post, once when it's ordered and then a couple more times before I mail them.  But I'm a touch OCD.

You want to be sure when there are two credits on the line!  I always wrap mine extra fancy!
