A  "Friend" sent me a book  that I had NOT asked for.     She said she got a request from me, altho   "Requested by me" never has appeared on my account page.  Soon afterward, the same thing happened to her!!   What's going on?   Have contacted PBS about this, but.............. ????

May be a glitch. I'd wait and see what they say about it.

It's possible someone ordered a book from your "friend" and asked that it be sent to you.

Or something in here may explain it:

I received a book I didn't request!

Are you expecting any books from the sender?  If so, it's possible they accidentally sent you the wrong book.  If not, it could be a glitch.  The former is more likely than the latter.
