How can you tell if your account is "suspended" or "inactive?"  I haven't gotten a request in several weeks. I had to deny that request because the book had been water-damaged in a move.

I then placed my account on vacation hold so I could go through all my books, check the posted ones for water damage, and post other books I had acquired. 

How long should I wait before trying to contacting someone about my account? Or am I just so unlucky that no one wants ANY of the books I've posted? 


Also, some of the books I posted I was the only one who had rated them. How do I figure out how many copies are already posted when I post a book?

You're account isn't suspended.  Other members can tell by looking at your bookshelf - if it's suspended the bookshelf will say "This account has been suspended or closed."

I suspect that you're just having a dry spell. 

To find out how many books are currently in the system, add your ISBN to your reminder list.  There's no way to know where in line your specific copy is.

I can see your bookshelf so your account is not suspended.  I think you would have gotten an email notification if it had been.  Sometimes I go weeks with getting a request, then in the last week I've had 3.  Put the books on your Reminder List and it will tell you how many copies are in the system.  It won't tell you where your book is in that number but you can check when you post a new book to your shelf to get some idea how many are ahead of you.

Your bookshelf is alive and kicking.  A suggestion/observation would be that all of your books are romace books. There is a glut of romance on PBS, so try and round up something other then romance...ask family members who have books laying around to donate them to you.Everyone hits a dry spell.

Nah.  My shelf is mostly romance & I get orders every week -mostly just for the romance books.  Try offering some deals & post them in your sig.  Also, join the Love & Romance forum and post on the book deals thread there.

If your account was suspended I don't think you could post here either.

I remember seeing a post here once from someone who opened a second account so they could ask what was going on because their first was suspended.
