I posted a book yesterday and it almost immediately went on a wish list hold (there was a tab under my account that basically said they were waiting on the member to respond that they wanted it).  I brought it to work with me this morning, expecting that I would get it mailed out today so that I didn't have to wait over the weekend. 

This morning, the tab is just gone.  No mention of a wish list hold, no new requests, nothing.  Why would this happen?  I assume it will be offered to someone else eventually?

Is there a grey (!) by the book on your bookshelf? That would mean that the first person turned down the offer and the next person had the book on Auto Request. Books on AR don't go into that Tab, they remain on your shelf with that grey circle on them through a 1 hr buyer remorse then go into a request.

If the book just has a box like the rest on your shelf, then thre were no other current wishers. Usually books like that get requested pretty quickly.

Sometimes it can take a few days to get a WL book requested. The front of the line could have some inactive people or people that don't have the credits right now.  Usually WL books are requested right away, but dont' be surprised when they are not.

Wonderful!  Thanks so much!  I just wondered why it disappeared all of a sudden, and was going to get it out asap if it was requested today.
