I just added over 100 books to my shelf, and when adding, 5 showed as WL. But, only 2 books showed up immediately on my account as WL holds and waiting the 48 hours. What happened to the other three? Could it possibly be that they were auto as they are my bookshelf showing as WL books and the system is waiting the 1 hour for "buyers remorse?"

Yes, that's it exactly. Auto=yes does not show on the WL Hold tab.

It is the 1 hour remorse period.  If you go to your bookshelf and very right of the book (opposite side of screen) there is a gray circle with a explanation point.  This indicates that it is on hold for the 1 hour remorse.

If they're auto-requests, they won't show up in the WL holds tab. They'll just show up with the 1 hour wait question mark on your bookshelf. After about an hour, they'll show up as requested from you.

Thanks so much, that's the explanation I was hoping for! I guess I've never had an "auto" before.
