I posted several ISBN's specifically because there were members waiting for those specific ISBN's.  There are still members waiting for those ISBN's two weeks after I posted the books!  Why isn't the system matching my ISBN's with the waiting members?

I would guess that it is rolling through the wishlist -- there have apparently been a number of members in line for your book who are not responding to the notice that the book is available -- each member has 48 hours to accept the book and if they don't then it goes to the next member in line, etc. Unfortunately, there are people in line that apparently have abandoned their accounts, but the system still has to work through giving them 48 hours to respond. Ultimately those non-responsive members will be declared inactive after they miss a certain amount of requests. So be patient and know that you are helping to weed out inactive accounts.

Do you mean they show as WL but aren't going on WL hold? Or that they keep cycling through wishers?  If the first: which books are you referring to?

If they are not on wish list hold then perhaps they have a different ISBN than the one you posted. They would have to do a title search to find your book. It took me months to realize I needed to put alternate ISBN's on my wishlist  for each version of a book; ie: paperback, hardback,audio, etc.

I went and looked at your bookshelf...I'm not sure which books you are referring too (if they are holding for someone's wishlist they wouldn't be showing) but, these are some of your recent postings

The Lucky One (31 copies available)

The Shack (453 copies available)

Run (1 copy available)

Paws Before Dying (17 copies available)
