A WL book is being held for me. It says to click one of the buttons on which addresses to send it to. If I click on one, will my RCs show up for the Sender to read? Or do I have to PM her first with my RCs? I'm afraid that if I simply click on one button, it means the request automatically went through & she just now has to send the book, without knowing my conditions.

Thanks. :)

Yes, RCs apply to books on your wishlist and will appear to the sender as long as you haven't turned them off.

Yes, the reason you are having to make a selection is that you have the book on 48-hour hold and not Auto Request.  Once you select that you do indeed want to receive the book the request will be sent with the Requestor Conditions and the person with the book will have the option to accept or decline your conditions.

After you say you want the book, it'll offer the request to the sender who will see your conditions and decide if the book meets them or not.  If they decline, you will retain your place in the WL line and the book will be offered to the next person.
