- I have a hold on a newer title, and I'm not sure if I will get it before Christmas 2018, when I usually go out of town. I know the earliest date that I will be out of town, but I do not know the earliest date I may be back - only the latest. If I suspend the hold as close to the date that I leave the town until the latest that I'm back in town, will my position in the holding queue drop down? It looks like with at least 15 days before I leave the city, that being 9th in the queue, I may get my hold before I leave, but at the same time it's also possible that I may not. If I postpone my hold say the day before I leave the city, until I know that I'm back into the city, where will I end up in the queue? Is it almost in my best interest to forgo my position, cancel my hold, and then place another hold, knowing that with nearly 60 holds on 18 copies, I will likely not get a copy until I'm back in the city?
