I just posted a book but it does not show up on my bookshelf........if it was wishlisted by another member would I get some notice? would it show up on my shelf? I clicked on the right buttons for it to be posted........How can you check and see if a book you might want to post is wishlisted...

Give it a few minutes, maybe the system is thinking.  FIFO handles wishlisted books differently depending on if they are on auto request or not, so give it an hour before you become concerned.  If wishlisted and waiting on member, the book you posted should appear on your bookshelf with a symbol (!) kinda like that in a gray circle (IIRC).  Wishlisted on auto request should just appear on your main page as a book to be mailed.  Otherwise it will only appear on your book shelf.

It should immediately appear on your shelf with a gray ! if it's WL on autorequest.  If it's not on autorequest it'll shop up under WL Holds in your Main Account screen.
