I made two book requests from one member September 3rd...(today is the 11th) and they are still stting on my account listed as accepted but there's been nothing else!  I also ordered two books from another member the same day and I got them IN a couple of days ago. Isn't there a time limit to how long a member can ignore a book request?

Are the request dates still saying 9/3? I'd guess the orders have been passed on the next in the FIFO line and are waiting on other people to accept the requests.

eta: I see you say they are accepted. In theory they could site there for 12 days from the date of request. 5 days to be accepted. 5 days to be mailed. 2 more days to mark them mailed. They could have until 15th to have them marked as mailed.

I thought maybe the sender made no reply and PBS went to the next available owner but there was nothing in my transaction file. Melanie, I think you may be right. I'll wait until the 15th and see what happens. Thanks for the reply ladies.
