I was looking at the books that are on other people's wish lists seeing if there was anything I had that I could list. I noticed that there was a book that I have on my bookshelf that is WL'd by 4 people. I have a newer version of the book with a different ISBN, but other than that, I think they are exactly the same. The book is Jemmima J by Jane Green. I was just wondering if there is a way to let people know that I've got a newer version of the book they want.

Nope - no way.  You can put it in the Book Thead as a WL book with a different ISBN, but it's doubtful those four people will see it.   IF they have the option turned on, they were sent a notification saying the book is available with a different ISBN.

there is a post in the book bazaar for WL books with different isbn numbers. you might list it there. it also might be helpful to tag the WL's book letting members know that the other isbn is available.

more than likely, the members are looking for a specific binding

I guess they must want the older version, because I just checked and there are 349 copies of the newer version that I have listed on the site. Oh well.
