I am about to move. I want to put my account on Hold so i don't have to worry about sending out books, but i would still like to receive my books. I am #1 on a book, and #2 on a book, and i would like to stay thusly and not miss a book. We're moving BUT i still own this property and don't have to have my mail changed immeidately.

So when i go on vacation hold, does my WL go on it too? How can i keep my WL active, but my bookshelf on hold?

yes....unless you have WL books on autoaccept.

so for those that you are near the top, put them on auto-accept and when you put your shelf on hold you will still get those books.

I had to do that for a few that I'm at the top and could possibly pop up while I'm on vacation next week

I had to do this when I went on vacation for a week.

I REALLY want them to make it so I can select-all and switch all the books on my WL to AR or 48 hour.  I had a hand cramp by the time I finished, but there are reasons to use one or the other--and they change from time to time.

It's my big grump about the WL--I can't switch them en masse back and forth between the options.

Thanks, my friends! I really don't want to miss any of my books. I did put them on auto-accept yesterday just in case, but i am not sure i managed to get my shelf turned off yet. Off to try it again now!
