Hi Everyone,

I just got a book back via the mail ... marked "Moved left no address, unable to forward, return to sender".  Since the book went media mail, I had to spring for the return postage as well. 

I have PM'd the other person, but no response as yet.  A check of his lists shows no books posted, but plenty on the wishlist. 

If this person gets hold of me with an alternate address, should I ask for 2 credits (1 for the return, 1 for the re-return), or what is the normal thing to do here. 

Thanks very much in advance for any help or advice.

Here you go...


  • You are not obligated to re-send the book to the requestor if this happened due to a problem with the requestor's address.   If the book was not damaged when it came back to you, and you do not want to re-send the book to the previous requestor, you can simply repost it. 

    • If you do not get a reply message from the requestor within 5 days of your PM, contact us.



If the book was returned to you through an error on the requestor's part, you can ask him or her for an extra credit (or money for the postage) to re-send the book,

Good reference -- and PMing the person will give you the info you need.  The Post Office could have made a mistake.  If they did, they should send the book again at no extra cost.
