Last week I received an offer for a book on my WL. I accepted the offer and waited and waited and waited. This morning I received the dreaded letter from letter from the Librarian stating:

"You recently requested the book titled 'Mercy' by Jodi Picoult. We have sent multiple emails to the member from whom you requested it, and have not received a response. Because the sender has not responded, we have canceled the request and returned the book credit to your account.

As you know, the success of the club is dependent upon all of us being committed to sharing books in a timely manner. As a courtesy to you, we have placed this book on your Wish List. Should it become available in the future, you will be notified. If the book was previously on your Wish List when it was offered to you, you have gone back to your previous position in the Wish List queue for the book."

I understand all of that. I'm not happy, but I understand!

So, can someone explain to me why I'm now #3 on the waiting/wishing list???????

You may not have been #1 when you got the offer. It could have been passed on because it did not meet the #1 and 2's Requestor's conditions or maybe 1 and 2 were on vacation hold or even timed out on the request. Many factors could be in play.
