I posted 2 wishlisted titles; both had no cover image available with the ISBN on their backs. Only one went to wish-list hold. Will the other book; The Girl From Botany Bay ever find it's wishers?

Are you sure it isn't on wishlist hold? I don't see it on your shelf.

If it is an auto request, then it does not go into with list hold.  It won't be visible for an hour, then it will be under orders.

If the other one did not go to wishlist hold, then odds are that it was on automatic request and is now in the 1-hr. buyer's remorse period before it shows up as requested.

Look for the gray (!) to the right of the book on your Bookshelf. When you hover over that you will see that the book is in 1hr buyer's remorse. Once that time is up it will go straight to Books Requested From Me, it doen't need to go into the Wish List Hold tab.

That grey ! only shows up on your own version of the bookshelf.  It does not show up on the public view.  I think you need to go through My Account rather than your profile.
