I'm going on vacation, so I put bookshelf on vacation hold, but auto-request on my wish list so I dont miss out on any wish list books? I will still get w/l books if on auto, but bookshelf is on hold.

TIA

Yes as long as you have credits you will get the orders.

Just make sure you have some credits.  You don't need one for every book that you have on WL. But make sure you have more than just a couple.  If you're out of credits, it'll turn the autorequest into a 48hr WL hold.  If that times out then you lose your place in WL line. But if you have several credits handy that shouldn't be a problem.

Yup, I was on a cruise in March and had five books come up on my WL while I was gone.  But I had a bunch of credits and my whole WL is on auto-request, so I got all five books.

Mary thats not true it was changed ...... a while ago. If you dont have credits it will act as if your book is not on AR.

  • if you have credit(s) in your account to request the book, it will be requested for you automatically, and sent to the Mailing address on your account.
  • if you don't have any credits in your account, you will be passed over for that copy, and retain your place on the Wish List.

How does the Vacation Hold affect My Wish List?

Hmm. I did not know they changed this. I thought that was a change coming with the new WL.
