Another book request lost in limbo land.  I'm on day 2 of the 2nd person out of 13 in the system.  At least the number is somewhat small.  I was going to post in the BB what book I'm looking for but I have so many.  I think I'll see how many people it'll get through before finally being accepted.  It's not like I don't have 300 unread books.  But one of those I discovered was 3rd in a series and so I decided to order the 1st.  The 2nd, 4th and 5th are WL books.  Well, I guess I'll do my part to help weed out the inactives.

Frustrating isn't it? 

What's the series?  I have a couple I'm holding back so I can (hopefully) ship all or most to the same person and save on postage.

I'm on the other end of the limbo issue. I posted a wl book and it's just gone to the 4th person this morning. There are 20 people remaining on the wl, someone has to accept sooner or later....one would think anyway. I've always been so lucky and had any wl books taken right away or at least by the second offer. Anywho I'm in no hurry so it's no biggie to me. Just annoying.

BTW Mary what book are you trying to get?

edited because I can't spell.

It's by Helen Kirkman.  I'm waiting for someone to accept A Fragile Trust. I have Fearless.  I have Destiny on WL and I'm drawing a blank on the other 2. 

ETA: the other 2 are Captured and Untamed. Untamed and Destiny are WL but I'm the only one waiting.  Maybe I'll order Captured and see if that person has the one that's in limbo.  Then cancel this other request.

It worked. Although it still has to be accepted.  I ordered Captured and that person also had A Fragile Trust.  So I cancelled the other request.  Now watch this one won't get answered either.  Well at least I let one time out.
