Hello - I see that often titles are available in different editions, HB vs SB, different covers, etc.

Do I need to wishlist each of these incarnations? Or will the system "know" that it is the title that is important?

Wishlist all of the versions you would be willing to receive. If you really want PB more than hardback, just WL the paperback.

And check your settings on your account, there is an option to recieve emails if a similar book is posted, ie., HC or audio. Sometimes, not always the system will recognize the title and send you an email. Of course if the other binding is also wished for, then it wont notify you because the book will just go onto a wishlist hold for the next person wishing for that binding. If it is a book that I really want I wish for both binding types, but I really prefer to read paperbacks so I usually only wish for those.

You will get notices when other versions are posted in to the system if they are not on your WL.  But if you don't have them wishlisted and others do, you won't be able to get that version as it will immediately go on WL hold.
