One of my books is on hold for someone's wish list.  My sister-in-law would like to read this book before I mail it out to someone.  I can't seem to be able to remove it from my bookshelf.  Do I have to wait until someone accepts and then mark it "can't send now"?

If I remember right you can't do anything until the other person does something. When they accept, you can then say you can't send it. I know I've tried to undo a 'send' when I've made an error in posting, and couldn't do it until the other person accepted it. Of course, if that person doesn't accept it will go on to the next person in line, so it might be some time before it can be canceled. Pat

If the book rolls through to more people, you can put yourself on vacation before the next person times out and then the book will go back to your bookshelf. Then you can remove it and take yourself off vacation.

Thanks, Sarah, I think I'll do that.
