I requested a book, and it took the person about 2 days to mark that they could send it later. It was supposed to be marked "sent" by 11 pm last night. It hasn't been marked "sent", but they printed the mailing label on the 17th. What will happen? Thanks!

They have 2 days after the noted date to mark the book mailed.  If they don't do it by that time, the system will cancel the order and your order will be passed to the next person or the book will go back on your wishlist with you as #1.  Hang in there, I had 3 books that I had to go into the extra days with due to getting use to our summer schedule and then discovering that I was one book short on stamps.  Everything did get in the mail, eventually.

Thanks; it's a really hard to find book and it had been on my wishlist for about a year with me being number 1.

If you don't know where the sender is - they might be in the middle of a flood and can't get to a computer.  We didn't get any damage a few weeks ago with heaby storms - but the cable company did and the whole town lost internet if they weren't on dial-up.  So we went without internet for 2 days.  Don't worry, it'll work out!
