I ordered a book from a friend here on PBS on April 9.  I think she must have gone away for Easter because I'm still waiting for the member.  I'm afraid it'll time out and I really want to get it from her (she needs a credit or two). 

What can I do if anything?  I'd rather not have it go to the next person and there are another 13 copies in the system.  What to do, what to do?

You could always cancel the order and then reorder from her.

MIchelle,

I wasn't sure I could do that without penalty to either one of us.

As long as you aren't cancelling requests willy-nilly you shold not have any problems cancelling and re-requesting this book.

If it times out then it'll remove the book from her shelf.  She should have put her account on vacation.

Did you PM her?  She might just be waiting to get closer to her weekly mailing day or payday.
