I have a book that I posted in my post list and in my Wish List Hold list.  I don't know how it got in the Wish List Hold or what this list is used for.  Could you explain this to me?  Mary D.

that means that someone wants that book and it should be pending a response from that member.  Now it is possible that once you posted the book it went into a 1 hour buyer's remorse period and then after that it should show up on your main page as a book that you are waiting to possibly send once you hear from the other person.

check out the help section too....lots of good info there!

Hi Mary, the book you posted is on someone else's Wish List.  From the Help Center:

When you Post a book that another member is wishing for, the book will be offered to the member immediately. Your account will show the notation below:
    Reserved On: (date) Status: Waiting 48 hours for other member to confirm that they still want this book.
  • When the Wishing member confirms that she wants the book, you will be notifed by email.
  • If she declines the book (or does not respond within 48 hours), your book will immediately be offered to the next member on the Wish List for that book.
    • You will not get an auto-email notifying you of this cancellation; the offer will just be passed along.
    • If no other members are wishing for that book, it will go onto your bookshelf. (If this happens, you will get an auto-email telling you that this has happened.)
  • If you have Posted the book in error, you will not be able to remove the pending offer.
    • You will need to wait until the book is requested, then click "I cannot send" on the request
    • You will have a chance to send a Personal Message to the requestor when you cancel.


Hope that helps.
