I have several books that I do not want to have on Auto Request.  These books all say they are "on hold".  I tried checking the "Unhold" button but it does not work.  Are they playing with the wish list again, getting ready to do the "rating" thing?  I wish they would leave the Wish List alone.  I like it the way it is!

I just checkmarked one of mine on Hold and hit the Unhold button and it worked fine.

Did you put a checkmark next to each book you wanted off hold?  You have to do it for each page. I noticed there's a button that says "check all" but then it only does it to that one page.  If you check books then go to the next page-you lose the checkmarks from the previous page.

Your account is on vacation hold. That's why your wish listed books that are not on auto-request are on hold. Remove the vacation hold and the message will disappear.
