I have been at the top of the WL for a book for nearly six weeks now.  I was offered the book more than a month ago and while the sender marked the book sent, it never arrived.  It was declared "lost in the mail" by PBS two days ago. 

This morning, I was offered another copy of the book.  I quickly accepted but was turned down almost immediately because of my RC.  I have allergies and asthma and can't accept books homes where there are smokers.  The sender said that while her home is non-smoking, she can't speak for the home that the book was in previously so...she declined.



I suppose I'll get the book sooner or later.

I had one that I'd waited 18 months on the WL for.  Finally got to #1 and it was posted to me only to go lost in the mail.  Considering the sender's acct was suspended (and still is), I suspect it was never mailed.  Went back to #1 after the system cancelled it and had to wait another 4 or so weeks for it to get posted again.  It was mailed right out but took like 3 weeks to get to me.

I feel your pain.

My 4th request for my jinxed book is about to go lost in the mail.  Then I will go back on the WL and start all over.  *sigh*
