I had a problem of posting all my books at once and then having to ship too many at a time so I put my account on Vacation Hold.

But I was getting low on credits so here's my work around (in case someone needs it-- I didn't know I could do this)

  1. Go to Bookshelf.  Select all books. Put on hold (this is not Vacation Hold)
  2. Post 10 books at a time.
  3. Leave the other on hold.
  4. Post as my budget allows.

Box of Books Question:  I can now go to Box of Book folk and browse. If I find several I like I can let them know the books I have on hold the release as needed. Is this rude or acceptable? It sure would help shipping cost.

You can do that.  When you repost your books, it's as if you are posting them for the first time -- you're at the end of the FIFO line.

FIFO is first in first out

Just make sure none of them have gone WL since you put them on hold. Or as soon as you unhold them they'll be offered to the first WL.
