I requested a book and the person said it could be mailed by June 8th.It is still sitting there.If they don't mark it will I have to go back to the bottom of the list if PBS cancels it?

if it's not marked mailed it will time out as far as I know and your requestt will go to the next member who has the book. wait to see what happens.

check out the help section to get more info.

If you order the only copy in the system and it times out then you should become No. 1 on the wish list.  So the next copy posted would be offered to you.

If you aren't #1 on the WL (if it times out) it would probably be because someone had a request cancel, time out or go lost ahead of you (or had it on hold/vacation on their WL).  But you should be #1 or near the top.  You should be put ahead of anyone who has added it to their WL since you requested the last copy.
