I'm not talking about putting your entire account on vacation hold. If you go to your wish list and put certain books on hold do you continue to move up the list? I know if you're number one you get passed over until you un-hold the book. But if you're farther down the list what happens? Thanks!

Yes Marci, you continue to move up the list if your books are on individual hold.  When you reach number one you stay there until you take the book off hold.

This is for the wish list.  Putting your Bookshelf on hold (other than vacation hold) is not good.  That puts you at the back of the FIFO list.   Folks need to be aware of the difference between WL and bookshelf policies.  Use only vacation hold for your bookshelf.
