Sometime during the night, I had a wish listed book offered to me.  As soon as I got the offer first thing this morning, I accepted it.  Later, I decided to go see if there were any other books on the members list that I was interested, and when I go to their book shelf, it said they were no longer a member.  I'm kind of confused how this could be possible!!  :-)  Any ideas?

ETA that I did cancel the request... didn't want to sit around and wait for it to time out in case I need that credit for something else.

This can happen if the member joins, posts a bunch of books, changes his mind and asks to have his account closed.

Since you canceled the request, the book was removed from your wish list. If you put it back, you'll be at the end of the line.

I did put it back on my wish list... thankfully, I was the only one wishing for it!

I guess it puzzled me because the book was posted at 1:30 am, and by 8 am, the account was closed.  It was a pretty quick mind change, lol!
