I've received a request for a second book I don't have.  I am convinced these books went out as a multiple order last Fall 2008 or I never had them.  I have searched my bookshelves, where ALL my books are stored, to no avail.  My hubbie has  not given or loaned any books out.

So, if I ever had them, they've already been paperback swapped.

Why is this happening a second time, different book?

When you find your first book, you'll know where the second one is too. :-D

Check your transaction archive - if you sent them (and they were requested through the system), they will show up there.  If they aren't there, maybe you sent them as freebies to someone and forgot to delete them from your bookshelf?

Just out of curiosity, did you just take your account off vacation hold? The only times I've had issues with books already requested being requested again was in the first few hours after my account was taken off hold. It seems to be a recurring glitch, though it doesn't happen to me every time.
