I have my bookshelf on hold. Can I still order a book, or do I need to take my bookshelf off hold?

I think so.  But why not give it a shot yourself and see what happens, and then let us know :)

Yes, I've done it quite often :) The only things that I've found Vacation Hold to stop are requests from your shelf and offers on WL books set to No for Auto-Request. Everything else is business as usual.

Yep-I just did it yesterday.  I put myshelf on hold because I don't need credtis and spent a small fortune on postage this month already.  But I ordered a book from a series yesterday and it went through fine without me coming off hold.  I just won't get any WL offers for books that aren't on autorequest.
