I have a book that is wishlisted.  I want to place it on hold, but whenever I post it, it goes straight to being requested.  When I receive a book from another member, I can put it on hold on my bookshelf.  Is there any way to do the same thing with a book that was not received from PaperbackSwap?

Add it to your TBR list, it will show up on your bookshelf on hold,make sure you match the ISBN, binding, etc.  Once you've read it you can post it right from there.

I put it on my TBR list, but it did not show up on my bookshelf on hold.  I was wanting to post this book in the bazaar under the wishlisted multiples, but I guess I could post to another person's wishlist from the TBR list (?)..  Would that work?

I think there is a way to do this by putting your account on vacation hold. But I am not experienced at it. I put the books on my TBR list, that will show up on the book details page.

But books on your bookshelf on hold are not shown to the public. Only you can see the books on Hold.

To post a book to the Wish List of another member, you MUST be on their Wish List. Otherwise the book goes FIFO. (First In, First Out.)

You can make a book list or a Tag list. but these are not accepted in some of the Book Bazaar threads. You might be better off making a list and copy it.
