Why oh why do people accept a book with the latest possible mail-date, then the day before it is supposed to be sent out, cancel the transaction??   [And now I have no idea why they canceled it, and I am curious!]

I swear, I've had about 6 of them this weekend.  Now I have to wait for people to accept again...  I think one of these books is on its 3rd or 4th request now.   *twitch*

<end rant>

I am so horribly impatient sometimes.

I would be a little frustrated as well but what can you? I think people like this should reconsider posting books at all sometimes.

That would get on my last nerve too. I realise sometimes life happens or something may have happened to the book but they could at least PM you and explain why they canceled. Hope you have better luck with your new requests!

Sorry this happened to you. I can understand your frustration.
