Hi, Sandy!  A one hour hold means that the member has requested the book and it's now in the "buyer's remorse" hour.  If they don't cancel the request within the first hour, it will show up on your account page. 

Most likely they had the book on auto-request, so they don't need to be online at all now.     :)

ETA:  Love the running puppy!

Usually it'll have a little A next to the W if it's on autorequest.  It sounds like that's what this was.  The book was on autorequest and then when it's posted it goes into the 1hr buyers remorse.  If they're out of credits it'll go into the 48hr hold to give them the chance to get a credit.
