If you go on vacation, you can put your bookshelf on "hold" so that you do not get any book orders.

That way, no one will be disappointed when you cannot mail a book.  Thank you!

From a disappointed (but understanding) long-time member. Sorry for the mini-rant.

Beverly ~ Thanks for the reminder!  I'm going on vacation in about 3 weeks, and I probably would have forgotten to do this.  Now I just have to remember how to do it :)

I'm moving cross country this summer and I already have my shelf on hold and am boycotting new swaps for now.  Everytime I take it off hold, I get a WL book offer.  I took it off for 3 days and got 4 WL book offers and no shelf orders. Back on hold again so I don't have to move so many books.

Im moving next week and also put my shelf on hold.  I didnt want to disappoint someone in case I couldnt respond in time or have the time to get the book to the PO.  The thought of closing down my wish list almost makes me want to cry though!  LOL

I wish I could just hold my WL and not my whole shelf.  I would still like to send some books out, I just want to stop the WL offers for awhile until I catch up reading the ones I have.
