I have a request for 7 books but the thing is they are requesting the books from a non smoking house I smoke but not in my  house do I accept the request or deny it? I'm so confussed.

Personally, I would deny that one.  Others will probably have different opinions, but I always read that particular condition to mean that they want books from non-smokers.

Are you aware of who this is?  Or is it a request with RC's?  If it iswith RC's,then I'd decline and put in the answer box the reasons just like you said here and put your nickname and State so that they can get back to you if they are still interested.

If it is a mutiple request, it is really nice to send a PM.  Otherwise the books roll over into seperate orders.  And as a person with a smoking RC, please turn it down.  They can repeat the request for the books with the RC off if your level of smoking is okay to them.

I agree.  Even if you don't smoke in your home, the cig smell could still transfer from youself to the books.  Better not to take the chance of getting an RWAP.
