I posted a highly wished for  book to a buddy, and I think she may be out of town!  What happens when her 48 hours are up?  Does the book come back to me or does it go to the person that was 1st on the wl?   We have 24 hours left......

Oh, shoot!   I never thought to pm and make sure she was going to be home to accept the post!  Maybe she will be around tomorrow!  Thanks for the info ~

Couldn't you 'unpost' it until you find out if and when your friend would return?  Pat

Sadly it puts the books on hold & you're unable to do anything with it until the person accepts or declines to book.

And it would be very, very wrong of me to cancel it when it went to the next person in line, wouldn't it?  I know, it would, but I'm double checking with you guys!  Maybe she will get the post tomorrow and I will have worried about this for nothing!
