If it is, and I don't want to pay for it, what'll happen to it?

I had one that was undeliverable and was returned to me.  I didn't have to pay postage for the return.  Wait and see what happens.

They are suppose to leave two notices.  First class books do get returned.  Media rate is more questionable.  And there is a chance of being returned with postage due.  Do you use PBS or your return address?  (Under settings we have two options on the return address.)

I use my own address. And though I do not want to pay return postage on a three pound package, I'd hate for the book to be tossed out or something. It's a huge beautiful cookbook in perfect condition.

The Southern Living annual cookbooks are in demand, and it's very pretty. A shame the requester never picked it up.

In that case, I'd pay the postage, if necessary, this once.

I was told at my P.O. that when any media mail got returned, it came postage due to the sender.  First class is returned free of charge.

Media mail is supposed to be returned postage due, but sometimes they don't charge for the return, for some reason.  Have you PMd the member to ask about this?

Yes, I sent her a message earlier this afternoon. I have a feeling I won't get a response though, since PBS has probably already fired off a few auto-emails to her about the transaction.
