I have a bunch of books on my WL for 2 of my daughters who don't live with me.  When they are offered to me, I have them sent directly to them using the 'alternate address' function.  However, sometimes, we are wanting more than one by the same title (don't have to be the same ISBN). Does it make sense for me to ask PBS if books going to an alternate address don't have the other books with the same title automatically removed from WL upon reciept of one copy?

My recollection is there is a box to check when you accept the book to indicate whether or not you want the book with the same title but different ISBN removed or not. I have done this when ordering for my mother.

My memory is not so good The box to check  appears when you go online to mark the first one received. When you accept, the others go on hold and you can manually remove the hold. The question re removal, best I can remember, is when you mark the first received.
