I'm trying to make one book mailed and  accept another request but I haven't been able to do either. The page says loading but nothing happens. Is anyone else having a problem?

I just ordered a book and got an error that looked like it did not process the order.  So I did it a second time and got an error again.  Then when I went to my account it showed SIX copies of the book had been ordered!  I canceled all but one, so hopefully it will work out, but definitely some weirdness going on.

It has taken me about 5 tries to log in. Plus, the pages are freezing up on me. What's happening?

I've been having trouble for the past 2 days, and have read another topic where several were having trouble with the pages just freezing. Since they don't last long, my suggestion (which is what I"ve been doing) is keep a book handy and read a chapter or two and try again to do whatever it was. This keeps your tension level down, since the minutes pass faster, and overall saves you time, since you don't assume it will be down for an hour and go watch TV or whatever, and then discover its BACK down again!

ETA: This is just a typical site reaction to maintenance and updates being done on the site, and should only last another day or two.

Thankfully I haven't had any trouble but I got the Daily Wish List e-mail at almost 10:30 am and normally it gets posted at 3:00 am.  So, something is happening on the site!
