I have some books that are WL but under different ISBN's.  Will PBS send an email letting them know that a book has been listed but with different ISBN?

yes, as long as they have not turned the feature off that allows emails for similar books under the "settings" page of their account.

If the individual hasn't turned that notification off, the site does send an email to those wishing for a different ISBN.

Also, there a thread in the Book Bazaar for wishlisted books with a different ISBN.

I would compair the bindings to what you have with what's WL. If the WL is for large print or audio and there's other versions available in PBS then they really want lrg print or audio.

If I have similar binding then I tag the WL version with the ISBN # of the book I have.

Tags really help.  Not all copies of the book are linked, so the automatic email doesn't always work.  Put the other # on the WL ISBN# page.
