I post a wish list book. It had 8 people listed. The first 2 I got were those picky ones that want excellent books etc. So I turned them down cause I just dont feel like a bunch of problems. Now my book is not anywhere. Do I have to repost it since I refused 2 people? And then wont it go back to the same ones again ? Thanks

It sounds as if you inadvertently canceled a transaction as well as turned down the transactions with Requestor Conditions.  When you turn down a transaction request using the My Book Does Not Meet Requestor Conditions, your book is offered to the next person in the WishList line.  However, whenever you turn down/cancel a transaction using the I Cannot Send This Book button, your copy of this book is removed from the PBS system, and you would need to post it back to your bookshelf to make it available again.

Since it would then be a "new" posting at that time, I believe it would be offered to the same people again who remain at the top of the WishList line. 

You should be able to refuse due to Requestor Conditions as many times as necessary without causing your book to be removed from the system.   Repost your book, refuse the RCs again your book does not meet, and continue to the next Wisher.  Eventually, you will be able to swap your book.

I dont know this was last night and it still hasnt showed up on any of my list any place. I didnt accept any request either. I didnt cancel any because I never accepted any to start with unless it was glitch.

If you did not cancel the request, perhaps your book went to a Wisher who did not have Requestor Conditions and had it on Auto-Accept.  Then a transaction would automatically have been set up with them.  You would see this transaction pending on your Main page. 

(Get to your Main page by clicking on My Account at the top of any page and then clicking on Main link from the top of the dropdown menu that appears.)

On your "Main" page, check all the tabs...is it under Wishlist Holds?  I currently have two sitting there waiting for action by another member.

I think it must have been a glitch I just reposted it and of course it went back to the over picky person !
