I have a book that has no isbn.  When I put in the info, the system assigns it a number.  When I check the wish list and the book is listed there, will my book connect with that wisher?

If my book matches the wishers request (title and book type), can I just mark post this book from the wish list?

No it will not connect.  No you cannot post it to their wishlist unless it has an ISBN that matches.

You must post the book without an ISBN to comply with the PBS golden rule.  But if alternate versions of it are WL, you can go to the Book Bazaar forum and advertise that you posted a unique ISBN version of the book on your shelf.  You may soon have someone interested in it because although most wishers want a specific version of the book for their keeper shelves or to match a set, not all do; some just want the book to read.
