I thought my account was on vacation hold, but it wasn't......if I don't accept the book will I be moved to the end of the line?

If you don't accept the book, it will be removed from your wishlist.  You will have to add it back manually.

If you don't accept the request, it will be deleted from your wishlist and you'll have to add it again. That will put you at the end of the line.

Why don't you want to accept it?  I know I have most of my WL on hold because my TBR pile is so huge, but if one slipped through I'd go ahead and accept it and add it to the pile.

UGH - thanks stinks!  Thanks for the replies.  I was just offered a wishlist book that I requested from bookmooch last night - I thought I put a vacation hold on so that I could give the bookmooch book time to get here.   Oh well, I may end up with 2 of the same....

Jennifer > Then you can just repost one of the Wish List books, if you do end up with two, and you'll get your credit back.

Even if you put your Bookshelf on Vacation Hold, all books on your Wish List set to Auto-Request - YES will still be active wishes. You'd need to make sure all were toggled to AR-No to not get offers.

Okay thanks everyone...and thanks to Alisa for offering me a credit.  I found a friend that wanted it, so it all worked out.  Been offered 3 wishlist books since yesterday!
