Hey,


I was thinking of ordering a book for the first time, but I'm unsure about how to go about it. I mean, I know to press the order book button, but do I have to pay for attention? How do I got about it?

Also,when I send a book to someone, how do I go about it?

When you order a book, the request is sent to the "owner" of the book. They will then determine when they can mail it out. You will then have the updated information show up in your account (the main page).

When you are sending a book to someone, the request will show up in your account. You will determine when you can mail it. It will then prompt you to print the wrapper. Print the wrapper, package up the book, and take it to the post office (some people mail it from their home but I don't).

Okay. so if I say I can mail it later, how much longer is later?

It will give you an option of dates. I think it is up to 5 days after the request was made.
