I tried to post a wishlisted book, The Potluck Club Trouble's Brewing, on my bookshelf and ran into problems. I had to post it without a picture because it would not come up with the picture eventhough it is pictured on others wish lists. I tried several different times to post. Knowing people are waiting for the book and not being able to post the very same book in the usual way is frustrating. When I put the title in a search it still comes up as not posted eventhough it is on my shelf without a picture. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks,  Meg

I had the same confusion when I posted a wish listed book. The book goes on hold for the first person in the wish list line.  That is why it's not listed as posted.  If someone saw it as posted and tried to order it, they wouldn't be able to get it because it's waiting for the people on the wish list to to confirm that they want it.

look for the grey circle with an ! inside....it was probably on a 1 hour buyer's remorse hold for someone that has it on auto-accept.  of course that won't apply now since it is past the 1 hour....but now you know for future reference

what is the ISBN so we can get a picture uploaded?

The book is not showing up on your shelf. It's probably on WL hold for someone.  If it showed up on your shelf originally then there was probably a ! showing the 1 hrs buyers remorse.  Then it would show in the requested from you tab.  Now I've had people cancel autorequested books on me before.  If that happened then it would go to WL hold or another buyers remorse hold depending on whether next person in line had it on autorequest or not.

Also: it doesn't need to have the picture to be offered to someone's WL.  The pictures are good to have especially for available books. But having no picture won't keep a WL book from being offered.

There is an image on the first ISBN, I'm not sure what the 2nd ISBN is that you posted because it doesn't pull anything up when I change it to all books
