Just figured this out. I realized that if I clicked on the PM button the book that is coming from her state and has a different title and is marked mailed 1/3 that I could see who sent it. It's her. So, 11 days after she marked it mailed, she is telling me that she will mail it tomorrow as she is too busy today. No reason why it wasn't mailed when she said it was, not to mention that the title is wrong. Off to PM her and make sure she mails the correct book.

I received a personal message thanking me my book request and telling me she will mail it out tomorrow, too busy today. Ok, fine. Except that I don't know what she is talking about. The book doesn't ring any bells. It's not on my wish list. I assume if it was an auto request on my WL that it would show up as a pending request on my acct if she accepted it. If she didn't accept it, shouldn't it still be on my WL?

I do have one book coming from her state but it was marked as mailed on 1/3 and has a different title. Is there some way she is talking about a book that I haven't been notified by the system yet that was on auto request?

I thought I would wait an hour or so and then reply to her PM.

It sounds like the other member just clicked the wrong PM button. If she got a second request for this other book from a different member, but she clicked the PM button on her transaction with you instead of the one on the new transaction, then that would explain things.

I think that may be what happened because I went out to the mailbox and guess what's there. The title that I had requested from her mailed on 1/3.
