Last night  I offered two WL books on "Is this on your WL"  So I posted them to the person who pm'ed me. Well she only accepted one and the other is"Waiting for member" which will roll over to th next person Tomorrow if she dont accept.

What I was wondering is how to stop it from rolling over to the next , and just post it to another pm who wanted it.?

I don't think there is a way. Once it's posted, it just rolls along with no way to stop it. You can wait for it to be accepted by someone, then cancel the transaction.

Put your account on vacation.  I have done this before and it works as long as you go on vacation before the book rolls over and delete it before you come off vacation. I have done this when I was tired of a book cycling through non-responders and wanted to offer it in the WL thread. I've done this when I accidentally damaged a book that was close to timing out.  And when I am really going on vacation and have one cycling through non-responders.

And it needs to be vacation no book hold.

I feel sorry for the members in the FIFO line for that book.

Fara ,I know. I always think on it before I decide to do it that way , but its because I have a disability and dont drive. So I only go to the post office once a week.
