I was called out of town unexpectedly due to a family issue. Before I left, I put my account on vacation hold. I had two books on my shelf that were being wishlisted that I could not cancel. After a bit, the members said they wanted the books (two days or so? Maybe three? after I left) so I marked them 'unable to send' and for the reason explained I was called out of town.

Now I don't see those books on my shelf. Do I need to manually re-add them? If tht is the case, when I do, will the people who had them wishlisted be able to get them?

Hi Sheri, 

Not a major screw-up at all.  When you cancelled the order, the books were automatically removed from your shelf. When you get back from vacation, manually re-add them and the books will be offered to the folks who have wishlisted them.

Don't add them before you are ready to stop the hold, or the act of adding to your bookshelf  will unhold your hold. (Start up your account again)

Actually, Barbara, it seems R&R have changed that according to the Help Center (and my personal experience). I had my bookshelf on hold yesterday, and then I posted a book. That book was simply put on hold as well, despite it being a heavily (240+) wishlisted book.
