Hey, I am glad you warned me...I had thought of turning that on but maybe I'd better not.  At least not until I hear that it can be removed if it puts too much on the list by adding all those versions!  I do like that feature, though, b/c how else can a person know all the versions available out there?  If I'm wishing for a book it doesn't matter if it's HB or PB or published again another year.  This should make them much quicker to get, which is the point I guess, but I won't be turning it on automatic until we know more!    D.

Maybe you have to turn it off on all the books before you can do it at the main options buttom?  Sort of like making sure subfolders are empty before you can delete the main folder?   D.

It doesn't add any additional editions of books to your WL unless you select them. So, if you have it turned on, it will show you the other versions, and you can click them if you want to add them to your WL, or just not click them if you don't. I've done it a few times now, and that is how it worked for me. If you don't want any of the other versions, then click on "I Am Done" in the upper right corner.

Doesn't help with not being able to turn it off, I know ....

Yes, until this bug gets worked out, I guess that's what I have to do. I just liked adding the one book onto my WL and done, onto searching for more books. :D
