I know you have a certain number of days to respond to a request for a book on your BL, then when you accept you have a certain number of days to mail the book, and then I understand you can take an additional two days after the expired days. 

My question is:  If I have 5 days to accept the book and take the 5 days, then do I still have the additional 5 or so days to mail it plus the 2 additional days, making it approximately 12 days from the day the requestor asks for the book until it's mailed     OR

Do I have the original 5 or so days to accept the book and then have to have it mailed by the end of this 5 days plus the additional 2 days, making it approximately 7 days I can take to accept and mail the book.

Hope this makes sense.  I usually accept on the day the book is requested and mail within 4 or so days, so I don't really know how long you can legitimately take to mail a book out.  Thanks.  Pat

The time frame to mail a book is the same no matter what day you accept the request.  So yes, you can have up to 10 days to mail a book - 5 days to respond to the request and then 5 days to mail the book (plus the 2 days after that to MARK the book mailed, although you should have mailed it by then).
