Do any of you here have more than one copy of the same books that you repost to your shelf  as soon  as you send out the first copy?  The reason I ask I ordered 2 books from someones shelf and they are about to go lost, when I looked at her shelf I see the same 2 books on her shelf.   I am waiting for a reply to see if she was delayed in sending.

I have on occassion had duplicates. But it does seem really odd that she would have those same 2 books reposted that are about to go lost on you.

Yes, I have and do.  Sometimes at the UBS or the FOL, I'll find a book/s that I know are heavily WLed and will pick up a couple of copies, and as soon as I mail one I'll post the other one.  Pat

I have also done that.  It doesn't happen often I think, but it is not outside the realm of possibility.  The odds are even less likely with two books, unless they were the same type of book (I know that UR and PR tend to be highly WL and quick movers)
