I have a wishlist book which is a Library book.  It was listed on someones wishlist, but they accepted and then asked me to cancel since they didn't want a library book.  I have reposted it, but its not back on the same persons wishlist.  Is there any way to stop this from happening?

Cancel again.

Tell the other member to put conditions on her account that say "no ex library books please".

Post the book again.

When she accepts, click "Book Does Not Meet Requestor's Conditions". (do not click "I Cannot Mail")

This will push your book along to the second person on the wish list. If the other member is the only one on the wish list, then it will move her to the reminder list and she will not be able to put the book back on her wish list until somebody else orders your book.

I am going through this right now. I have had the same person request my book three times recently with the same conditions. I click the does not meet conditions button and several hours later the same person is requesting the book. I'm to point now that I am going to let it time out. That person is apparently the only one requesting the book but it keeps coming back to her.
