I have a small problem i'm not sure how to handle.  I ordered a book from another member but when i received the book it was the wrong one.  The person who sent it was very apologetic and refunded my credit.  My question is what do i do with the book that i got?  It's an awesome book but i already have it and have already read it so i have no use for it.  Thoughts?

Unless the sender wants to give you postage to send it back I would post it.

You might send her a PM and ask her if she sent it to you in error - did you get it by mistake and it should have gone to someone else?  If so, most of the time she'd send you a credit and the address of the person who should have gotten it (this credit is in addition to the credit she returned to you) and ask you if you'd be willing to forward it on.  Otherwise, she should send you a credit and ask you to return it to her.  If she didn't send it in error and doesn't want it back, then you can do with it whatever you want.

Thanks everyone.  Just wasn't sure what the proper response was in that situation.  I appreciate the responses. :)

I personally just sent out an incorrect book. I told her to just post it, it wasn't worth the extra credit/postage to have her return the book to me. I then sent her the correct book and we were all fine.
