I am cleaning out my bookcases and getting rid of books that have been listed for years that nobody has requested. I am donating them, so how do I delete them off my posted book?

Open your bookshelf- check the box on the right hand side of each book you're removing and then choose delete

I did the delete thing from my bookshelf, but it is still showing in my posted books.  Maybe I am looking in the wrong spot. I just don't want somebody requesting a book I no longer have.  I need a better system. I am going to have to print out what books I have posted and then put them all together, so I am not searching for them.

Subject: got it, thanks

I'd like to add a warning.  The individual bookshelf Hold will remove you from the FIFO list.  The Vacation Hold keeps your place in line. 

Be careful of that bookshelf Hold.  VERY different than the wish list Hold.
