I have 2 WL books that I posted to one person and will be timing out in about 3 hours. I know it was on at least 10 other of my friends WL. Will they automatically post to another friend that has them both on their WL or will it then post to FIFO if they do not accept by the deadline? (My apologies if this has already been asked before smiley) Thanks!

I think it goes FIFO when you post to a friend and they don't accept.

I'm betting Rebecca is right, but I have no first hand experience.

Nicole--if you find out, post here--I'm curious.

Q: What if my Friend declines the Wish List offer of my book?

A: The book will be offered to the rest of the club, and the member who is first on the Wish List will be offered the book.


If you want to avoid this,put your bookshelf on hold before the transaction expires.Then delete the books off of your bookshelf before you release your bookshelf off hold.You then can repost your books again.

Yep, put your acct on vacation hold now.  When they time out, the books go onto your bookshelf rather than rolling over to FIFO.  Once you delete them, come off vacation hold and you can repost them to another gold key friend.
