All the books on my WL are on auto request. I do know that if  I have more than one listing for a title and one of them is on the way the other editions will be "on hold" and the box around them shows pink instead of green. Is there any other reason the box might be pink? I have a title that I recently put on my WL, it's in pink, it's auto requested and there is no copy on it's way to me. I don't see that I have already received this book, I checked my transaction archive. Any reason why it's highlighted in pink?


It turned out that this one book wasn't on Auto Request. I knew about the hold for pending books. This wasn't the case in this book. Thanks for the help. All fixed now.

The "pink" background for listings in your WishList indicate that the book is on WishList Hold.  You will retain your place in the WishList line for the book, for when it comes off of Hold status, but you will not receive any offers or notifications the book is available while it is on WishList Hold.

You can manually take the books for which you still want them Active in the WishList by clicking the box to the far right, putting a checkmark in it, then clicking Unhold button at the top right side of the page.
