What I meant is that perhaps the "hold for" books on step 1 could have an  
expiration date with the option to renew their "hold for" status on step 1. The 
suggestion is because, really, it occurs to me that a validator for whom a 
book  is being held could die and none of us would ever know about it. In that 
case,  just how many years would a book remain on step 1 marked "hold for?" In

Roger I  renew a "hold for" the same way I renew any other book on 
step 2. So there  is the option you requested already.


To repeat yesterday's  message, if a volunteer finds a book with "hold 
for" and wants to know  about it and the volunteer whose name appears 
on it, just write to the  list and ask. We are usually polite to each 
other on this list. We can  work things out.

It just upsets folks when somebody grabs a "hold for"  book without 
asking first.

I give a lot of time to volunteering.  During the past six years I 
have validated hundred and hundreds of books.  However, I actually 
have a life outside of bookshare, there is a 5 book  queue and there 
are reasons for "hold for" which others have already  described.
