I had a request for one of my books. I accepted the request. I pulled it out to wrap for mailing and discovered a problem with it I didn't see before. (The pages have come away from the spine. It's only noticable when opened from the back cover, which I didn't do when I checked before posting on my shelf. Lesson learned). I hit the cancel this transaction button on my account and I PMd the requestor with an apology and said I was going to remove the book from my shelf.

However, when I look at my shelf the book isn't on it. What's going on?

When you said you couldn't mail the book, the system automatically removed it from your shelf.  :)

When you cancel a book transaction it automatically removes the book from your shelf.  The only time it doesn't is when you hit Doesn't Meet Requesstor's Conditions.  If you hit I Cannot Send For Other Reasons or Cancel-then the book doesn't go back on your shelf.
