Glitch maybe?  I just got an offer for a WL children's book that I have never heard of.  I double checked my WL just incase I had an incorrect ISBN listed but but didn't see this book.  I passed, but it was odd.....

If the book has been offered to you, then it will no longer show up on your WL page, so there's nothing to double check there. If you don't want the book, best thing to do is just decline the offer.

Don't declined books show up in your transaction archive?  

(Don't think I've ever declined a WL book.  Been removing too many books from there to make space.)

Well, I know a regular book cancelled by the requesting member should show up in your Transaction Archive, so I would think it would do that for WL books as well. 

On second thoughts maybe "I do not want this book" do not show up, just the "Cancel this order" transactions.

Not everything shows up on the transaction archive, but I'm not sure of the differences.

I dunno.....I got two books offered to me this week also supposingly from my wish list. They weren't even the type of book I would read ......ongoing mystery style books...like book 13 & 15 ...of different sets. I know for sure I never added them...nor have I noticed them when I regularly skim thru my wish list to purchase books on PBS or delete ones I found at the thrift store. Weird!!!

It had to have been a glitch, I too scan my list often and this was a kid’s book with a bright bird on the cover, I think I would have noticed it if it had been on there accidentally.  No big deal, I was just wondering if it was happening to others.

And yes it is in my archive now.  I feel a little bad for the sender, there are no other wishers so I assume they are dissapointed that I turned it down.  I am just glad it was not on  "auto request".

Going to scan my WL right now.......
