I searched for this answer, but couldn't find exactly what I needed.  So...

I put my bookshelf on Vacation Hold.  And I just noticed that every book on my Wish List has a line that says "This book is on hold".  I checked them all and clicked "unhold"---but nothing seems to have changed.  That line about them being on hold is still there.

So....my question is, will I still be offered wish-listed books while my account is on Vacation Hold?   I'd hoped to hold off on mailing books for a couple weeks, but had no idea it would stop me from being offered some wish-listed ones, should my turn come up.  

Thanks for any help!!  And sorry if this has been answered a thousand times already......

If your account is on "vacation hold" you will still be offered your wish list books as long as they are on "auto request".  So for any book that you know you want on your wish list--put them on "auto request".

You will need to put your wishlist books on auto-request if you want them ordered while you are on vacation hold.  Otherwise, both your wishlist and your shelf are on hold.

Thank you, Laura and Mary.  I had no idea----and I'm getting close for a couple of them, so I'm so glad I asked!!
