without placing my bookshelf on hold, too?

I am overwhelmed with my TBR pile, and would like to place my wish list on hold, but NOT my bookshelf.

Is it possible to do that?

Not yet but I think they are working on that option.  I had my account on hold for quite a while because I was moving cross-country. I wanted to stop the WL offers so I could downsize the TBR pile to be moved.  I took it off hold a couple weeks ago and I have literally had around 20 WL offers.  The only orders I've had were for books I just posted and weren't available and WL books.  So I'm thinking about going on hold again.  I'd like to get some of these WL books read while they're still WL.

I would LOVE for them to do that.  I'm right there with you Lynn.  TBR pile out of control at the moment!

It isn't the easiest move, but you could move your Wish List to your Reminder List, so you'd still have easy access to them, but wouldn't be ordering them.

I also see you're looking to send to KS, so I've ordered a book from your shelf :-)

If you move books to your reminder list than you'll lose your place line. I would only do it if you are the top of short lists.  If you're near the top of a long list-you'll have to start all over again.  If you just put your account on hold you'll still move up the line or keep your place. It'll just skip you until you come off hold.  Also you can still post WL books to send out, you just need to come off hold long enough to post the book. Once it's on WL hold you can go back on hold.
