It says I won't lose my place in line which is great, but I'm still confused.  Will I still continue to advance so I'm eventually #1 and then can just "unhold" it and order the book?  I get the vacation hold, but this is blowing my mind for some reason (not that it takes much these days).

Margaret, 


You will continue to advance in the WL line.

When you get to #1 it'll just skip you when the book is posted and offer it to someone behind you until you unhold it on your WL.  If you unhold it at #1 then the next copy posted to FIFO will be offered to you.
