I have an audiobook I'd like to post. All the required elements match the PBS listing (title, author, ISBN, format) - but mine is only 4 discs, where the description states its on 5 discs. I assume this is still ok to post? I have the original box - which states it came on 4 discs from the manufacturer. And everything is on the 4 discs (even the extra author interview mentioned in the PBS description!). Thanks for your help.

Personally I would post it separately. Some people are really picky about which version they get and publishers are bad about reusing ISBNs for different editions. It may be a different reader or something.  You can tag it "same as (link to listing) but on 4 discs instead of 5" or something like that.

Interesting, hope a TG stops to weigh in on this one.  According the posting guidelines, only the Title, author, binding, and ISBN need to match.  Unless your edition says abridged (if the listing is unabridged), it's technically postable.  OTOH, there's no point in asking for trouble either. 

If you have reason to suspect the PBS listing is incorrect, contact a Data Editing person.
