I posted a book this morning that was wish-listed. It appeared on my Wish List Hold tab for a little bit then it disappeared. It is not on my bookshelf or any of my other lists. I have not received a request for it. What happened? It had both an ISBN13 and an ISBN10 number. I listed it by the IBSN13. Is that my problem? Should I relist it or will that make it show up twice?

FYI: It was "90-Minute Fleece" by Nancy Cornwell. ISBN13: 978-0-89689-408-2, ISBN10:0-89689-408-8. It is complete with pattern included.

I have had books dropped from my bookshelf for no apparent reason. Try relisting it, it doesn't matter if you use the 10 or 13-digit ISBN. If it has been dropped, it will let you list it; if you can't see it because it is on a WL hold waiting for another member to accept, then it won't let you list it. If it has been requested, then all is well and ignore my advice.

What Adrienne said -- there's a one-hour buyer's remorse period after a book is requested during which time the sender won't see the request.

I finally decided that there was some kind of glitch. I relisted it. It was wish-listed and immediately requested. It is now on its way to the requestor. I hope that he/she likes it. I don't think that any more will come of this. It was just a glitch in the system somewhere.
