A person got 2 of my Patricia Cornwell books yesterday (I have not mailed them yet) and I added a bunch more to my bookshelf today.  Is there a way to contact that person to see if they want to look at my bookshelf now that I have added more?

There is a pm button at the bottom of the request box.

I have just asked the same question and there are only the 'Mail' option boxes in the 'Books requested from Me' tab.

The PM option shows up once you have accepted the request and I want to contact them before accepting - is there a way to do this?

I dont know that either...hmmm  I guess you can accept it, PM them and then cancel it if you have to.  but there should be an easier way to do it.

no, you have to accept first and then you can contact them.

The system will not give you the 'PM Requestor 'button until the request is accepted.  You can stil add books to the order after accepting, just don't use the printable postage option then it doesn't matter how many books are mailed with the same shipping label.
