I was wondering the same since the hold was so far down, but it apears that 
when books are returned from the bookshare team with a hold it doesn't 
necessarily go to the top of the list it goes back by the date of the 
sumission. Please correct me if I am wrong on this. The reason I think this is 
the case is that I knew there was a book put back for me and I expected it to 
be at the top and I almost paanicked thinking it was gone, but then I found it 
a ways down.

Also, I was not aware if our boks were not aproved that they would go back on 
the checkout list with a hold on it. I like the action of doing it this way so 
we have a second chance to fix things, but I just wasn't aware.

  Okay, I am the submitter of Malcolm X, the Last Speeches and it is duplicated 
for a specific reason. The book was proofread and sent back to the checkout 
list with a request for a specific correction and with a hold on it for the 
proofreader. After a good long time had passed without any sign that the 
proofreader was inclined to take it back I just uploaded it again to give 
someone else a crack at it. I figured that the one with the hold would be there 
if that proofreader wanted to try it again and if not then it would still be 
available for someone else. If the rest of you do not think that is the way to 
handle such a situation then let's discuss what to do if Carrie returns a book 
for more editing with a hold on it and the person for whom it is being held 
does not take it back.

  Ok, hope I'm not being too proactive. I see that "Malcom X: the Last 
  Speeches" is near the top of the Checkout list and yet, almost at the bottom 
  of the list the same book is there with a hold for Melissa. In this 
  scenario, someone could easily accidentally check it out not knowing there 
  is a hold.

  At the same time, since it is so far down on the list with the hold, from 
  back in April, I am not sure that it would be right to eliminate the most 
  recent one.
