I have 1 credit in my system, and dozens of books on my wish list, with 99% of them on Autorequest.

Several of them I am 1 out of 1 in line. Why isn't a book automatically shipped?

If you are 1 out of 1, I believe that means you are the next person in line when the book is posted.  Apparently the book isn't available yet.

If they are still on the wishlist it means that there is not a book in the system to be shipped.  When one comes available since you are number 1 on the list of people wanting the book, it will be sent to you.

okay thanks

I have so many books that I am 1/1 and didn't realize that was what it meant. Only been on the site for about 2 weeks

The good news is that you will soon start getting tons and tons of books in the mail...

It won't auto except them if you don't have the credits to cover them though.  You might want to take them off autorequest until you have some credits. Then if one comes in you have the wait time to get some credits.

Jay, you will still be given the option to accept the Wish listed book, even if you do not have credits.  You will be given 48 hours to decide whether to accept it by buying credits.  If your wish list book is on auto-request and you don't have credits, it will be turned into a regular wish list offer with the options above.
