I just posted Sizzling Sixteen which is a WL book (I also posted a few other books not WL). My account showed 2 WL holds. I checked and both holds are for Sizzling Sixteen. I only have one copy on my bookshelf.  I do not see any way to delete one of the requests. How should I handle this? My first thought was to send the book to the 1st member to reply and cancle the other request and state that the system offered 1 book to 2 members.

And the two holds are going to two different people?

Good question Mindy. I just checked by clicking the PM button and both requests are for the same person. I guess there is a glitch in the system.

This is a common glitch Michelle. I would PM the requester and let her know both offers are from you and she should accept them both. Once she accepted them you can cancel one. If she cancels one, they will split and one will get offered to another member and then it gets messy.

Thanks for the advice Melanie. I just sent her the PM like you suggested.
