If my shelf is on hold and I post wish list books that are on auto will they go through?????  I have a ton of wish list books that I have to get off my desk and onto my shelf, I don't want them to be accepting at this time. So will they just go on hold along with my shelf?????

No the books should not go through to Requestors.  According to the Help Center, books newly posted to a bookshelf on Hold will be on hold (hidden from new requests).

How does the Vacation Hold affect My Bookshelf?

How does the Hold affect your Bookshelf?

  • The books that are on your Bookshelf at the time the Hold goes into effect will be hidden from requests.

  • This does not include books that are involved in a Wish List Hold or an active transaction.
  • The FIFO order of each book will be preserved during the Hold; it will not "lose its place in line" to get requested.
  • Books that are already involved in an active request will not be affected by the Hold.
    • Any book request that was submitted before the Hold went into effect will not be affected by the Hold
    • Any book request you submit at any time (before, during or after the Hold will not be affected by the Hold.
  • This means that all auto-emails associated with an active transaction will be sent to you as usual
    • You will still get auto-emails asking if you have received a book that is en route to you 14 and 21 days and 25 days after the book was marked mailed by the sender.
    • You will still get "second" and "third" notifications for previously-submitted requests to which you have not responded.
    • You will still get auto-email reminders to mark your outgoing books mailed before the deadline if you have not done so.
  • Books newly Posted to your Bookshelf during a Hold will be hidden from requests.

But they will all be offered at once if you take your shelf off hold unless you go through and individually hold them.
