I bought a stack of wishlisted books at a bookstore sale this weekend, and some of the books had multiple wishers so I bought two copies.

I know you can't have two copies of the same book posted to your bookshelf at once. How soon can I post my second copy? As soon as the wisher claims it, after I print postage, after I've mailed it, or after it's received?

Thanks in advance for any replies!

I know you can do it after you mark it mailed.

You might be able to do it after it is requested. Not sure about that, though.

I had a big pile of identical books. I had to wait until each one was marked "mailed" before I could post the next one.

After you marked it mailed then you can post the next copy. I've done it several times before.
