I just posted a book and realized I shouldn't of posted it due to slight water damage (not really damage but you can tell the first few pages got wet). I rec'd it this way but accepted it, but realized I probably shouldn't of reposted it. Is there a way I can remove it, even if it is on someone's WL? I don't want to send it and the person be unhappy with it. Thanks for any and all help.

You cannot remove a WL book until it has been accepted.  After they accept the book, you can select the Cannot mail this book option.  Do not select any option about the book not meeting the RC, that will cause the book to roll over to the next member in line.

You must be the one to cancel the order.  If the wisher cancels, then the book rolls over AND they lose their place in line.

Darn, ok thank you. I posted it and then remembered (after being on vacation) why I hadn't posted it before. Thanks for your help.

When you received the book did you ask for your credit back??

If it looks like it's going to time out on the first wisher-put your account on vacation.  Then the book will go on vacation once it times out.  Delete the book before you come off vacation. That'll keep it from going to the next wisher if the 1st one is inactive.
