I just ordered a novel, but it's still listed as available. Can someone order that novel after me and my order be overlooked?

Welcome Jesse!

Once you request a book, and someone comes along after you and requests that same book, it is requested from the next person in the system that has it available.   Each sender has 5 days to accept your request so be patient!  If for some reason they cannot send the book, your request will roll over to the next person who has a copy available.

to find out how many copies there are on a book add it to your reminder list.
