I have a book in hardback copy that is not wishlisted, but noted that there are a lot of people who have the paperback version wishlisted. Is there a way to let them know that there is a hardback copy of this listed or do I just sit tight and wait for someone to discover it?

I have heard people mention putting a TAG on the paperback version that it is available in Hardback.  You'd just have to be sure and remove the TAG when it was taken.

There's a thread in the Book Bazaar for wishlist books with different ISBN's.

also, those with the pb on their WL should get an email saying that an alternate version is available.  They may not have ordered it because they want the pb and not the hb.

but definitely post it in the book bazaar in the thread that was mentioned

You can turn that email w/dif version of a WL off. I have it turned off. So not everyone may get an email.  I turned that option off because I have several books I only want in audio and it was sending 20 emails a day because it's in paperback and hardback.
