put your bookshelf on "Hold" while still keeping your WL active?  Thanks.

You can keep your WL active while on vacation hold by putting the books on "auto-request"

Just make sure you have some credits on-hand.

Make sure you use vacation hold rather than individual book hold.  The bookshelf individual hold works differently than the WL hold.  Bookshelf hold puts you at the end of the FIFO line.  The vacation hold keeps your place in FIFO. 

There is a button to select all WL books and place then all on auto.  You can then use WL hold on selected books.
