I try to find the answer before I post here when I have a question, but I can't find the answer for this one.

If I have an individual book on hold, do I go back to the end of the queue when I unhold it?

Are you talking abut a book on your wishlist or book shelf?

On my Bookshelf.

Yes, if you put an individual book from your bookshelf on hold, it will go to the end of the FIFO line when you unhold it.  This is not the case with WLed books.  You CAN put individual WLed books on hold and they will continue to go up in the FIFO line.  HTH - Pat

Thanks, Pat. I don't want to put any books on hold but I'm working on my Bookshelf and have to 'hold' some books as I'm not sure which box they're in. I had to cancel a request this past week because I couldn't find a book which was frustrating because I'm so anal about keeping track of my shelf books.

Once I take my shelf off vacation hold there are some books I don't want to show, will probably end up deleting them altogether to make room for more titles. I'm in the mood to purge my book collection anyhow so this will be a good way to keep up the good work.
