I am looking for two copies of a single title. Can I get on the wishlist twice for the same book?

Not the same ISBN, no.  You can have multiple editions on your Wish List, though -- hardcover and paperback, for example, since they usually have separate ISBNs.  But if you want the exact same book, you'll have to Wish for it once, then get back in the Wish List line again for each additional copy.

You can wish for two copies with different ISBNs. If you want two copies with the same ISBN, I believe you have to wait until you get offered one copy and then put yourself on line again for the second copy.

Dorothy, that only works for books currently available in the system.  Not for Wishlisted books.
