This isn't a question as much as a GAHH!!!!! moment.  I've received the wrong book from 2 different members twice this week!  How hard is it to just double check before you wrap a book to mail it?

I agree! Either double check the books before wrapping or print one at a time and wrap before printing the next one.

Whenever I get a request I write the book title and address on an index card and place it in the correct book. I wrap each one, one at a time. I have a terror of mailing the wrong book to the wrong person.

I avoid this by printing the first book, wrapping it, marking it mailed, and then printing the next one.

No way to print the same wrapper twice or mix up the wrappers, I am only ever working with the first book in my list.
