I posted the wrong edition of "Breaking Dawn" by Stephanie Meyer on my bookshelf and now I can't delete it and list the real one, because it is pending on about 100 people's wish lists. How do I fix this?

Sara, you'll just have to wait till one of the Wishers accepts the request, and then YOU cancel the transaction by clicking on I Cannot Send This Book button (which will show up once a Wisher has accepted the request.)  When you are the one to cancel it, the Wisher goes back on the WishList at their former place and the book will be removed from your bookshelf, which is what you want, correct?

(If the other person had to cancel, they would lose their place in the WL line, and your book would go back on your bookshelf, and get passed on to the next person in the WL line, keeping the transaction going on and on...)

Thanks so much! I will message the first person on the Wish list with your response!

I think the "kindest" thing to do would be to cancel once the person accepts the book, but then see if they have the copy you DO have wish listed as well, and post it directly to them if they do. That way they won't be disappointed.
