That isn't mine.....I think the sender printed out my mailer twice.  I got my book and this other one.  Would you contact PBS to do a little research on where it should go?  I realize I am due some postage or a credit to forward it along.  So, I am guessing I need the senders involvement to get this compensation, right?  Its been 6 days since I PM'd the sender. 

The book is haunting me - it wants to go on to its rightful owner.  Owner, are you out there?  I am trying.  Really I am.

Since you've not heard from the sending member, then yes, I would contact TPTB and let them know what happened.  They should be able to access the sending member's account and at least maybe contact the person to whom the book was supposed to go to let them know what happened.  I'm not sure if they would give you the address to send it on, but they might.

Yes, if you've contacted the sender and see where it was supposed to go and she didn't PM you back, send a note to TPTB. She is supposed to send you a credit if you're willing to forward it to the right person. (You could do it for nothing, I suppose, but why should you pay for her mistake?) If she doesn't respond in a reasonable amount of time, I would say the book is yours.

THe person who ordered the book originally will get their credit back when the book is marked lost. THey can always just order it from you if PBS connects you.
