Yes, when you order a book, it's the system Paperback Swap uses to determine who will get first crack at filling your order.  Whichever copy of that ISBN was first into the system (determined by date posted) will be the first one out to you.

How long do we wait for the member to respond before we cancel the order or does it go to the next member to fill the order?
