i posted a heavily wish-listed book and then noticed that there was  underling on the last few pages.  The wisher has not yet responded and I think that request will "time out" and go to the next wisher.

Is there any way I can get this book out of circulation?  Or do I have to wait until someone requests it and then cancel the request?

If you put your shelf on Vacation Hold, the book will not be offered to the net wisher and you can delete it before taking the Hold off.

You can still ask a credit for the book.  Just offer it in the book bazaar or the Is This On Your WL thread for that genre (if there is one ) and state that there's underlining.  If it's heavily WL there's more than likely someone who will still be willing to pay a credit for it.

Thanks so much.  I'll putt my shelf on vacation hold.  I saw myself having to respond to about 73 wishers!
