I had a dumn thing happen.  Had requested a book and was sent two books.  I thought I probably had been sent two answers to my request and forgotten and answered both.  So, I just reposted one of the books and kept the other.  Now I have read the one I have and tried to post it to send and the site will not let me.  I think it is a book people want to read and I would like to mail it out????Any ideas.?????Betty

If the first book is still on your shelf, you can't post another copy of it with the same ISBN.

You'll have to wait until the first copy is requested and sent out before posting the second copy.

What is indicating you cannot post the book? Are you getting an error? Not showing up on your shelf or not showing as a WL hold? If it goes into a 48 hour WL hold, it will be on that WL hold tab. If it goes to an auto-request WL, it will be on your shelf for 1 hour with a grey (!) and then it will go to your order tab.

It's also possible that it is on your shelf on hold from when you received it. Did you try searching your shelf for the book to see if it is listed under the On Hold? Then you'd jsut have to check the box and click post.

Just some thoughts on common posting issues...
