I posted a book to my bookshelf by mistake and it's on hold waiting to be accepted. Is there a way I can cancel the book from my book shelf before the person accepts it?

No, you have to wait for them to accept it and then cancel it. That will remove it from your bookshelf.

When you get a request, make sure to click "I Cannot Mail". Do not click "My Book Does Not Meet Requestor's Conditions". If you cilck "My book does not meet..." then it goes onto the next person on the wish list.

That sounds more like the person requesting it cancelled the order.  When you cancel a book once it has been offered, it was my understanding that this cancelled the book from the FIFO list.
