Just checked my account page.  There is a "wish list" hold on a book of mine.  It says it's waiting 48 hours for the hold.  I'm really confused because this is a book that has been sitting on my bookshelf for a few weeks now.  How did it not FIFO and end up doing the 48 hour hold wish list thing?

That just means they're giving the person who wishlisted  it 48 hours to request it.

Maybe someone had it WLed before they put their account on hold prior to you posting it? That's the only reason I can think of because there is no WL button on a book that is posted.

Yeah maybe the person wish listed it, put her account on hold, then you posted it, then that person unheld her account...
