Subject: Bookshelf on Hold?

I have individual titles that are on Hold on my Bookshelf, but the majority of my titles are just there waiting to be requested.

If I put my Bookshelf on Vacation (or Hold -- whatever is the correct term), will those individual titles show up as ready to be requested when I take my Bookshelf off Vacation (or Hold)?  Or will my Bookshelf return to the way it was before I put it on Vacation (or Hold), with some titles on Hold and some titles waiting to be requested?

FYI:  I put the books that are in my TBR list also on my Bookshelf but with individual holds so I don't have to go flipping all over the place to see which ones are Wish Listed by others.  I try to read the ones that others want so I can get them off my shelves sooner.

Your bookshelf will return to the way it was. I have a lot on the individual hold because PBS defaults there. I have my shelf going on and off Vacation Hold all the time and it never affects the individual holds.

Thanks, Melanie!  I'm so glad I don't have to write down all those individual titles!

The TBR list has big W's (red or green) when a book is wishlisted.  I believe the green means it's on Auto Request.

Oh, I think I misunderstood.  You must mean you only want to look at one list and not both, sorry.
