I have a pending book bazaar deal.  If my my account is on Vacation Hold and the books on my WL on auto-accept, will the sender still be able to post directly to my shelf?  I've read the help docs and understand that I'd get WL fifo books, but wasn't sure about my situation.

Only if you are #1 on the WL. If you aren't #1 on then it works like a Vacation Hold. You will continue to move up the line but you will only be offered the book if you get to #1.  So if you are lower down on the WL and they post the book on your WL page-it will still go to FIFO.  I learned this the hard way.

That's good info, Mary.  Thanks!

IIRC other members cannot post directly to your wishlist while your account is on hold.  Same for individual books on hold.
