I have some books that are listed on the wish list. The problem is that my books are older prints or newer prints and the ISBN numbers do not match the ISBN numbers listed. How do I let people know there are multiple print copies? I would love to share if I only knew how.

You must post, obviously, your books under their own ISBN number.  PBS sends an automatic email out telling members that "an item similar to one on your wish list is available".

You may also try listing the WL books in your signature, or in the book bazaar, to let folks know of their availability.

There is actually a thread in the Book Bazaar for books that are WL under different ISBN.  You might try listing them there.

I'm glad to know about that thread.  I've been having a trying time with the search function and one particular author.  I get 2 different lists of her books that doesn't have the book I want on one and has one that I want but none of the others in the series.  Weird.  I'm going over to check out that thread.
