When I go to the "Books I've Requested" tab of My Account, I see a book that I ordered.  The status is "waiting for member".  I assume that's me.  True?  If not, then never mind. 

Is it waiting for me to do something? what? The only button I see to click on is "Order More From Member".  I looked at his inventory, and there is nothing more I want to order from him.  Is it a requirement?  I don't see anywhere where it says I HAVE to order more than one book, but I don't see any option that says, "OK" or "yes, place order".

Is PBS waiting for me to do something?  what?

It means that it is waiting for the other member to accept the request. You don't have to do anything else

Here is the link that explains what happens after you make a request for a book:


The sender has 5 days to respond to your book request. If the sender does not respond (or if the sender declines the request) the system will automatically pass your request to the next member offering the same book.
