I have 2 books posted  that are on the Clubs Wish List, how do I let these Club members know about them.

Thanks, Wanda

the must have different ISBN's if no one has requested them or they aren't pending.

I would find the ISBN that DOES have a WL and put a tag that refers them to your ISBN.  You can also post in the book bazaar that you have whatever book and the ISBN and people will find it that way too

Before you do that compare the bindings and see how many of your version are posted. If yours is an MMP with lots of copies posted then most likely they only want those WL versions-especially if the WL version is large print or audio.  If there aren't many copies of yours posted then tag the WL version with the ISBN of yours.

Ok now I'm going to check out your shelf and see if it's one of mine.

It's a coding system that publishers use to help retailers identify their books.  It's voluntary, unregulated and they reuse #'s so they aren't always accurate.  The system is set up to send emails to people when a different version of one of their WL books is posted.
