Lol...I am sorry.

Usually that happens when you click on the book you are interested in, which takes you to the book details page. If you request from the book details page, your request goes to FIFO.

You need to go back to the member's shelf and request from that list.

HTH!

If you went back to her shelf to send the PM it sounds like you weren't on her shelf when you ordered the book.  Did you look at the book description at all?  Or did she let the book time out and it went to someone else? I had that happen once. I orded from someone offering a book deal. She never marked it mailed.  Luckily I caught it before the 2nd person has accepted the request. I would have been really annoyed if the 2nd request had been accepted and printed and then I couldn't cancel.

The only way the order goes to someone other than the person you are ordering from is if you go to the description to read what the book is about and click the order button from there. Since the order is not going to the person you are intending to order from, you must be going to the description, thereby leaving the person's shelf. There is no other explanation, you seem not to be understanding what we mean by leaving the person's shelf. Because that's the only way the order can go to someone else.

Once you look at the description for the book, you must click the back button on your browser to go back to the person's shelf BEFORE you click the order button.

Before you click the button to order, slide up the page, and make sure it says at the top "so-and-so's bookshelf" then you will know you are on their shelf. If it doesn't say that you are on their shelf, then you need to use your browser's back button to get back there again. Hope that explains it better for you.

you do not seem to understand i order this book from her bookshelf I did not go to the description. and once the order was done i went back to her shelf to send her the pm with the list of freebies.. that is why i do not understand  how she could get the pm but not  the book order from her shelf.
