I was just browsing my WL and a couple that had "expand wish" buttons I clicked on...one is An Antarctic Mystery by Jules Verne, but in the expanded wish, it has two other books listed, neither of which is the same book. One is Around the World in Eighty Days (another Verne classic) but the other is called "The Poop Ghost and Other Stories: Tales of a Suburban Dad" by Jon McGrath. WTH? Not even remotely related either author, ISBN, title or subject matter. How on earth does that happen?

This happens to me every time I search for Eckhart Tolle books! Weird titles just thrown in. Good question Cheryl.

I have been sending in notifications right and left lately to TPTB about this...today the Expand Wish button led me to a dozen books linked to the book I was wishing for and not one of those books was related in any way shape or form.

I come across this a lot.  Send in feedback with the link to TPTB and let them know so they can correct it.

Wow, I noticed this was fixed already this morning...there are now 27 other editions of An Antarctic Mystery listed instead of those other books. LOL Great work, PBS team!
