So I just lised to audio books and was suprised to see them come up immediately as on WL hold. So out of curiosity I looked to see how many people were waiting for them.  I came up as 6 and the other said 0. Does that mean the 1 person that was waiting for the book is the one it's on hold for?  Or does that mean it was on a WL but not any longer? It won't keep this book in perpetual hold will it?

I think it means that there was one person on the WL for it, and now your book is reserved for that one person.  :)

Ok that's what I was hoping.  I hope they want it then. I'm sure one out the other 6 for the 1st book will want that one.

That is right, if there is only 1 person wishing for a book and  you post it, when you search the WL it will say there are 0 wishers. This is because the book is being held for this member, and if they decline the book, there will no longer be anyone wishing for that book.
