Years ago I belonged to the Quality Paperback Book Club. I've posted a few of those books, but their ISBN's come up as the hardback version, so I've posted them as "no ISBN". Now I've discovered that those books do not link with the wish list. I just posted a book that several people are waiting for, but they won't know, because I couldn't post it under its ISBN because it's not a hardback. Is there another way for me to get around this?

per the posting guidelines, you're posting correctly using the no ISBN -- since the database one is not the same as yours.

I would suggest posting in the Book Bazaar forum that you have XX book posted, but it's a no ISBN one. I believe there are a few threads there for wishlisted books specifically.

Not that I know of because WL books are linked to specific ISBNs.  The best way to get this book noticed is to post it in the Book Bazaar and hope that you find someone who is looking for it.  I've had good luck that way.

Speaking of incorrect ISBNs, I discovered a book on my list that I had posted incorrectly.  Because the back cover's ISBN was covered with a sticker, I looked inside the front pages.  There were two different ISBNs listed on the page, several lines apart, one for the hardcover version and one for the paperback!  So, it's really important to look at the book info when it pops up to make sure it's listing the correct binding.
