Got a guy who kept posting this book and then canceling 2x. Now I have someone who didn't mail the book? 

Wondering if I'm ever going to get this book.

Just be patient.  These things do happen.  You'll get the book eventually.  PBS does teach you patience.

HB? I got one in a box of freecycle books, it's frickin' huge. Maybe he saw how much it cost to mail.

ROFL  ! That could be the problem, postage. Been a member for ever and have never had this problem before.

That beats me -- I once had to order a book three times before I got it, the others were listed as Mailed but never got to me. 

It does make you wonder if there's something about a book (or the people who read that book) that leads to problems. Wouldn't someone realize a heavy book was going to cost a lot to send when they posted it? Maybe not until they printed out the page.

Maybe people who read it are really busy!

That's one of the reasons I sold it on Amazon instead of posting it here, it wasn't worth one credit to mail it. Plus it was in such good shape I got $12 for it :)

I just had the same thing with a different [paperback] book.  I'm still number 1 on the wish list though it's been posted three times.  Canceled twice and not mailed the third.

Sooner or later I'll receive a copy.  Meantime I'll read something else.

Ok here's the next one. LOL hopefully I'll get the book this time. I have the others waiting to be read till I have them all. I really didn't think the author would finish the series. :) Thanks for the encouragement everyone.

Got it, LOL I was beginning to think it was cursed or something.
