I requested a book. I was turned down because of my condition request. I asked for non-smoking and non-musty. I don't have a problem being turned down. I figured I would get some turned down. So I look at the email that I got saying I was turned down because of my condition request. But there was this little blurb in there, 'sorry, I am unable to find this book at this time.' I figure ok, they probably just can't find it and didn't relize that it was still on their bookshelf. So I went to go request it again....this person still has this book listed out there. Will the system somehow remove it from her bookshelf so since she doesn't know where it's at? Should she remove it?

The system would have removed it from her shelf if she had clicked on I CANNOT MAIL, however since she denied your RC, the book remains on her shelf.  She'll have to manually remove it.

This sounds strange because if the RC was turned down this would have rolled over to the next member in the FIFO line.  Is it the only copy on the system? 

I would PM the sender and let them know that since they turned down the RC because they couldn't find the book, but it is still on their bookshelf.  You can not put it on your wishlist because 1 copy is in the system and it will continue to roll over to them.  I would check to see if there is one copy by adding the book to your reminder list, then looking for the book on the RL.  It will show how many copies are in the system.

It's showing only one in the system and when I try order it, it shows its the same person who turned me down. It's still on my wish list so I guess if another is entered, I would be first in line.
