Anyone else get this message when checking in a book?  It says that I have these other ISBN's on my WL, and that it will delete them if I don't uncheck them.  

But these AREN'T on my WL... they never have been.

The message that popped up looked like this:


Have you received this book in the mail?


There are other versions of this book currently on your Wish List. We will automatically remove the checked books from your Wish List if you do not uncheck them.

  • Audio Cassette - - 9780788743672
  • Other - 9781417710065
  • Hardcover - 9781574902129

Add this book to my TBR Pile.

Just wondering... the first time it happened, I quick checked my WL to see if maybe I was missing something, because it was a WL book I was checking in, but this one had copies in the system... it wasn't WL.

I've received this message yesterday and today - same thing, they aren't/weren't on my wishlist. I was glad they were going to be "removed" automatically, lol, rather than added, because I'm out of room!

I got the same message the other day.  I was kind of confused because they were all audio books and I only get regular books.  I double checked my WL and didn't see any audios on there so I ignored it.

I've been getting these too.  I think they are working on letting you delete other versions from your wish list when you get the book you want, but are having trouble with the list. They are listing all the versions, instead of just the ones you have on wish list. 

If you are satisfied with the book you received, just let them delete all versions, even the ones you know you don't have on wish list.  Eventually they will straighten this out so it only shows the ones you are actually wishing for.

I just got it today. It said there were other versions on my WL, but I know for a fact none were ever on my WL. Two had been on my RL, but neither were the hardcover and it listed a hardcover edition as being one of them. I just left them checked so they could "remove" them. I thought it was weird, but maybe it's just something new they're working on that hasn't got the kinks worked out yet.

I've seen the message too, I saw it a couple of weeks ago for the first time but then I never saw it again until today.

I just clicked on OK and it did not do anything to my WL. (as I expected, since I didn't have other versions on my WL, either).
