Hello, I recieved a book yesterday that I didn't order. I have looked in my transactions also just to be sure and it isn't listed any where that I ordered it. I did however have it in my reminder list to get later on. I tried to send that person a message but since she isnt on my friends list I am not sure how to do that. I went and searched her name cause I thought maybe I could send her a message that way but it didn't list her. If she sent it by mistake I want to send it back to her or to the correct person or make sure she gets her credit for it. Anyone ever have this to happen? I am just not sure how to go about contacting her to let her know,lol. Thanks

Did it possibly come from box of books? I don't see how someone cold have gotten your address without an order.

you should be able to find the person with first name and last initial...then you'll have the city and state to narrow the search...if you want some help looking PM me the above information...

There are some tips and suggestions in the Help Center under: "I received a book I didn't request!"

wasn't there someone sending out books mysteriously before, Kim P maybe? I remember someone posting a thread trying to figure out why she got a book. I think it was a RAOK or something with several people recieving books at different times. (not much help, sorry)

Check your other books that you are recieving and see if the senders name is listed on one of them. It's possible she/he mixed up an order and sent you someone elses book. And someone else may have gotten the book you ordered.
