Hello.  I've been using the site for about a month now and can I just say I TOTALLY LOVE IT!!!

Anyway, I do have a couple of questions:

I have about 20 books on my shelf that are on the club WL.  They do have different ISBNs.  How can I get the word out?

I've been watching the Book Bazaar and have posted myself.  I've noticed some postings only say "bump".   What exactly does that mean? 

Also I've seen some topics about the WL changing.  What are the changes?

Thanks for answering.

Bump means that they posted on the thread to get it back to the 1st page. 

Look at the versions that are WL. Put your books on your reminder list and see how many are in the system already.  If you have a paperback that's already in the system, most likely people only want the version they have WL.  Especially if the WL is for audio or large print.  If it looks like you have the same version, just a different ISBN, then try putting the books in your signature line and posting about them in the book bazaar.  You can also Tag them.  Tag the book that's WL with your books ISBN#.  Something like : posted w/ISBN#xxxxx.  Then maybe you'll get lucky and someone will look up the book.   

You can read about the WL changes in the help docs and the newsletter.  Go under your main account page and then look under Club Communications.

An explanation of the new WL can be found in the Help Center under Coming soon: the new Wish List
