I normally send out one or two books a week, three if it is really jumping, but I haven't sent out a book in about six weeks! I went on vacation six weeks ago and put my shelf on hold. I thought that I took it off hold, but have not had one request since I went on vacation. Can someone look and tell me if they can see my shelf? Am I having a dry spell, or is something wrong? Did I mess something up? Someone please help. Thank you in advance.

Well, the tab is there and your shelf is popping up when I click on it.  I normally have a busy shelf too, but it slows down from time to time.  You might have sent out all of your books that are rare in the system or something, and you could be down to the ones there are just a lot of.  You could try putting some of them on your reminder list and seeing from there how many titles are available.  If there are a lot of them, that's probably why it seems to be slowing down.  2 or 3 books a week is actually a very brisk turnover.  I don't think most shelves get that many requests.

Bill,

I just checked your shelf and it is there alright.  My guess is you just hit a dry spell and hopefully things will pick up in the future. 

Good Luck, Heather

ETA:  Oops, I see Kim and I posted at the same time.  But at least you know more than one person found your shelf, so it really does exist! :)

your shelf is there...i just ordered a book from you, to help with your dry spell.  :)

you might want to consider advertising your shelf in the bazaar and doing a 2 for 1 deal.  you have TONS of mysteries, which might be appealing to some of the bazaar browsers.  :)
