I posted a book that is on several wish lists but it has a different ISBN than waht PBS shows.  Same story same author, does anyone know why?

Those people who have thier settings set to receive specific email will receive an email that a book similiar to one on thier WL is available in the system and give them an opportunity to order it if they want.  Also, there is a thread in the Book Bazaar to list WL books with different ISBN numbers link.  You can also put it in your signature and if someone is interested they will view your bookshelf.

Good Luck.

You can also use the tags to connect two books with different ISBNs. Add a tag similar to:

Also available as ISBN ##########

Then when the person looks at the book's detail page, they might catch your ISBN and order it.

In the book bazaar there used to be a post of WL books with different ISBN.
