I know people are waiting for this copy, shouldn't I have gotten a "hold" type email while they check with the member? 

Sorry - I am new and just trying to fully understand.

If you post a wishlist book, it will either be on your shelf with a one hour hold (if the first member has it on auto-request) or it will show up on your My Account tab under Wishlist Holds (if the other member has 48 hours to accept).


I'm not sure what emails are sent - that depends on what you have checked in your Settings tab.

Also, you need to make sure the ISBN matches the WL book, not just the title. So many people miss that the ISBN is different than their book.

Welcome to PBS Margaret!

From your book shelf, if a book is on hold for another member...the far right hand side of the book info will show a white ! inside a gray circle.  After an hour, the book will appear on your main page under the appropriate tab.
