I just received a request for a book, but no PM, even though I have a Book Bazaar deal going on where my books are 4-for-1.

Thing is, the book is the first of a ... quatrology?  Four-book-series.  I'd prefer not to break up the set, but I accepted the request thinking the person had PMed me, but they didn't.

Now I don't know how to find them.

Is there an easy way to find members?  I've found that the Members Directory doesn't really work that well - I've taken to attempting to check a member profile to see if they have a deal going on, but all I can go by is their name.  And if the name is kind of ambiguous, like "Mary L" or "Susan S", it takes forever to find the member I'm looking for!  (I look for # books on bookshelf). 

But the books on bookshelf feature doesn't work that well for a book that was ordered from me!

If you accepted the request there should be a PM button in the box where the request is waiting for you to print the label and mark it sent.  The PM button is in the center bottom of the request box and says "Send the requesting member a PM"

ETA: What Tammy said, since we posted at the same time!

If you accepted a request you should have a pm option for the person on your Requested From Me list.  If you click that it will show you the person's id.


BTW the kitty in your avi looks just like the one in mine did when he was a baby Maine Coon :)
