What could of happened? I ordered a wishlist book and got it in the mail. Everything was great! But, I now see the very same book accepted and printed?! and then on my transaction archieve it shows I didn't accept it?! I don't understand what's going on. Any ideas?? I contacted r&r but not sure how long that takes to get an reply back.

I would PM the person who's accepted and printed to try to stop them from sending the book if you already have it. Did you have auto accept on any of your wishlist items? That may be why you never had to accept. Did you wishlist multiple listings of the same book (just different ISBN #) to make sure you got it? Sometimes the system doesn't catch and remove all of those. The system has been really flakey lately. Hope they get it cleaned up for you.

Thanks, I never had it on auto request. So I know that's not it. But, I sent her a pm. Hopefully she will cancel it or r&r can cancel it. I don't know what else to do.

If it is to late to cancel, what you can do is once you get the book, just repost it to your bookshelf! I am sure someone will snap it up!

I always make sure I check the other versions on my WL are deleted whenever I get a WL book on the way to me.
