Is this a new thing?  The information slip in the book says that the book was requested for me by someone else but I don't know who that person is.

Do I just mark it as usual?

Yes,

I myself have requested books to go to other members. I didn't have any problem with it and it was marked as usual. I just pm'd the member that I requested it from and thanked them for sending this to so and so. Actually, I have done this several times. No problems yet yes  I just requested 25 childrens books to go to my neice in Ga back in the beginning of the month.  Most were from 1 person, but had 3 other members sent them too.

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend  cheeky

If the book was ordered for you by someone else, then the request is on that person's My Account page, not yours; so you can't mark it received.

I wonder if this was something like you requested a book from A, who couldn't mail for some reason so ordered another copy for you from B. If that's what happened and you do have the book on your own page, then you could click the PM button and see the name of the person who's supposed to be sending it. If that matches the name on the wrapper as the person who requested the book for you, then you should mark it received.
