at one time?  There's a book I ordered for my study group at church and the sender hasn't responded yet. There are other copies in the system and I was thinking hubby and I might both like our own copy anyway so I tried to go order a second. It warned me that I'd already ordered the book, but let me go thru the process when I hit OK, but now there is only one copy showing on my list. So, do I have two copies ordered or does the system auto cancel the second order if you have 2 of the same book. Not a huge deal, mostly curious. If I only get the one book that's OK and I'll order a second later if I still want it.

You can only order a second copy after the first one shows as en route to you.

You should be able to check your transaction archive to see if the first was cancelled.
