I am about to leave for vacation. My bookshelf has been insane with orders. I have had about 20 in the last 10 days. It's got to stop. I can't afford shipping. Plus I am leaving on vacation Monday. How can I stop all the book requests yet still keep getting wish list books if they are offered ? I SHOULD be able to check in to PBS every few days but I don't want to have too.

 

Thank you for the help in advance.

Put your WL books on auto-request (go to WL page, on the right there is a spot to change it to "auto-request: yes"

Put your shelf on vacation hold.  (Lasts for up to 30 days)

You'll stop getting new request to send books, and if you have the credits, you will get the WL books on auto-request.

ETA: Here's more info from the help docs

For some reason I thought it was 30 days. Sorry about the mis-info.

The lack of a simple way to do this (or the opposite, if needs be) is my biggest complaint about PBS.  Every time I go on vacation or have a crisis, it gripes my liver.
