I posted a WL book last night that is now on 48hr hold.  I leave Thurs for vacation and have the account set to go on hold Th-Sun.  What will happen if they accept/request the book and then I am gone for 4 days?

You will have 5 days to click that you can send the book.  If they accept before you leave, click that you can mail it, then choose the latest "I can mail by..." date.  If they accept after you leave, you'll be home before the 5 days are up to accept.


If they don't accept your offer, and you are on vacation hold, the book will be placed on your bookshelf until you take your account off vacation hold.  Then it will be reposted.

If it gets accepted tomorrow after you go or moves on to another member right before your vacation starts, you should have until Mon or later to accept the request.  It gives 5 full days plus however many hours are left in the day it's requested.

Why post a book right before you go on vacation? Sounds like more of a headache than it's worth since you'll be rushing to make sure the book gets out on time...
