I had the only copy of a book posted on my shelf..  Today I find that it's on a WL hold.  I don't understand this.  If it was a posted book, why is it on someone's WL hold?   Pat

Someone must have just added it to their wishlist.

No, someone can't wish list an available book, they'd just order it. What is usually the case is someone had it on their wish list and put it on Hold. Then the wish list was all granted and your book was posted. When they take the Wish List off of hold, it would put your book into a Wish Hold for them.

That does make more sense, and the book did get ordered.  Pat
