So I was number 1 on the WL for a book, that was posted to the system.  I have been waiting for the member to respond to the fact that I affirmatively want the book since Feb. 28 at 10:30 am (I responded right away when the book was posted in the system).  Now that it's the afternoon of March 5, hasn't it been 5 days?  Shouldn't I be back on the WL from waiting for this book?  I'm normally pretty patient, but I'm anxious here mostly because it's the next book in a series I want to read.

Christine, it should time out at about 3 a.m. tomorrow morning if the sender doesn't accept it before then.  Things move over in the early morning of the next day, not exactly 5 days after you accepted the book.

The exception is the 48 hours you have to accept a WL book.  that tends to be pretty close to 48 hours.
