How can a book that was previously a wishlist book that went through all the people wishing for it without anyone picking it up go to my shelf for a few weeks and now appear back on wishlist hold? I just noticed there was an extra book on my wishlist books pending tab and there it was. Hmm- glitch?

I was thinking that might be the case after I posted here the first time.

That would be my guess.  It wouldn't let anyone put the book on WL if it were available in the system.  It would only offer Order or Reminder list.  The system must not be set up to move a book from WL to RL when it's on hold and becomes available.

This just happebned to me--a book that had been on my shelf for ~2 weeks is now on WL hold.  It's been on WL hold for 1 day now.
