Just out of curiousity, can anyone think of any reason why someone would repeatedly offer a book and then cancel the transaction once accepted? The only thing I can come up with is they are trying to offer it to a friend and don't know how to do it. It's not really a big deal, I don't lose my place in line and they've canceled quickly each time, but with no exlanation so I'm curious!  ;-)

It happened to me with a wishlist book before. I came to the same conclusion as you that she wasn't quite sure on posting to a friend.

Sounds possible, pm and ask.  Maybe the member would appreciate some posting assistance.

Do you have any RCs?  If you do, it could be that.

No RC's and no replies from the poster. They do appear to be new, so I'll just chalk it up to unfamiliarlarity. Thanks!
