I was looking through the club wish list and saw a book that people had on their wish list in paperback.  I have the book in hardback.  How do I offer the book to people who might like it in hardback instead?  If anyone knows what I should do, let me know.    Thank you to everyone here at PBS.

First, I would check to see if the book is wishlisted under your ISBN.  If not, there are a couple round about ways to let people know that you have it.  You can tag the paperback wishlisted version with a tag that says "Alt ISBN #1111111111111"  (replacing the 1s for your actual ISBN).  Some people might be looking for a specific copy of a book, but others just want what is between the covers, so this information may come in handy.  Just leave that tag up after the book is posted, so that others can use this information.

The other thing you can do is go to Book Bazaar.  Each month, someone starts a thread for Wishlist books that you have on your bookshelf.  Just post the name of book, author and ISBN and your book should find a new home quickly.

if your copy is not WL and you put it on your shelf, an email is sent out to everyone who is on the WL for that book, that another version has been posted. they then have the option to order that one if they wish to do so
