I'm trying to order two copies of the same book. Seems like they are available, but I can't seem to order the second copy.

I believe you will be able to order another copy as soon as the first one is marked shipped, but not before.

Not that it's necessarily easy to do, but you could theoretically find someone who has the book on their shelf offering a deal .  Then it could piggyback the purchased book as a freebie.

If you need both copies ASAP, I would be happy to order the second one for you and have it shipped to your address.  About a year ago, someone needed about 20 copies of a book that we had plenty of in the system for a book club.  We got around the problem with a whole lot of people ordering the book and having it mailed to the book club host.

the easiest way to do this is to have a buddy order it for you and you send them a credit. i needed 10+ copies of the cay at one point for my mom's special ed class so a lot of people offered to order them and have them sent to me. it worked out great! :)
