I sent a bob out and have not heard from the other person? The DC# says it has been delivered, I PM'd and asked if everything was fine and if they knew when they would be sending out my books? NO response (Its been 2 days) I tried to see if they had been online but they have it blocked and I noticed they are not a boxer anymore??

I just want my books :(

This is unfortunately a downside of BOB. If the other person flakes out on you then you're stuck   It's possible that their BOB just expired and they just haven't gotten a chance to PM you or mark the books received.

Also where are they? I just went close to 3 days w/o power due to a severe winter storm.  I managed to get to the library once to use the computer but not everyone has that option. 

This is one reason that, when I was a boxer, I only did small BOB exchanges.  Yes you save more in postage by mailing more books at once but then there's a bigger risk of books going lost or the other person flaking out.

If it's me. I swear the books are on their way.   DC showed them to be in PA on Feb. 27   I didn't get a PM.  If it wasn't me please disregard this notice.   I put my account on hold because I was over my head with box offers.

I knew it really wasn't me. Every time I start reading the forums  I worry that I will have been guilty of what ever some one is ranting about.  I just couldn't resist  when I read a forum posted by someone I knew I was trading with.   Everytime I have sent a bad book because I didn't check it well enough I send the person back their credit right away.

This happened to me twice back in December - January. Unfortunately, it's part of being a boxer. I'm careful now, not to box with anyone who doesn't have a lot of fpositive feedback.
