I mailed a book out on Jan 17 with DC on it according to the tracking the book was delivered on Jan 19.. However the receiver hasn't marked the book received yet...  Will PBS check the details of the book before they think it's been losted in the mail?

Was it PBS DC? If it was, then even if it goes lost you will keep the credit. I had one that was shown delivered for almost 3 weeks before the person marked it received. I think we have a few members reading the books before they mark them. Guess they want to make sure we didn't hide a booger on page 283 or something.

Yes, if it was PBS DC you will get, or possibly already did get, your credit.  If it was not PBS DC, then you will not get your credit and it will go lost unless the member marks it.  You could send a gentle reminder to the receiver, letting them know that DC shows it delivered and you were just wondering about it.  That might remind them to mark it.

Thanks it was a PBS DC good to know I won't lose my credit.... I sent the receiver a gentle reminder about a week ago and nothing.... 

Melanie, I know what you mean I'm sending gentle reminders to mark received quite often....  One thing I've noticed though is that it's only books marked with a PBS DC that people don't mark received.....  Do you think that they figure since the sender has already received credit they don't have to bother with marking received?

You must have gotten one of my books.
