I posted a book.  It was the only book like it in the system.  Someone ordered the book (gray box showing up on BL), but at the same time it's showing as if I'd posted a WL book and shows it is waiting for the person to confirm they have a credit for the book.  I don't understand.  Can someone explain how a book on your shelf can wind up as a WLed book?  Thanks. Pat

If the other person who was wishing for the book was on vacation hold when you posted it, then when she came off vacation hold, the book would have moved from your shelf into a wish-list hold status. It will go back onto your shelf in 48 hours if the other person doesn't accept the offer.

OK  that makes sense.  The book did get ordered so there's no problem.  Just couldn't figure out how a posted book became a WL book.  Thanks. Pat
