I have a series of books put out by Guideposts that don't have ISBNs, but I see some of them on the Club Wish List with short ISBNs on them. How were these put on someone's wish list if there is no actual ISBN in the books? I'd like to post mine or offer them in the Wish List Multiples post.

Thanks for any help!

You have to post yours without an ISBN, causing a new short ISBN to be issued. Then what I do is put them on hold on my bookshelf and check back on them in a few days to see if anyone has added them to their WL. If so, then you could add them to your post in the WL Multiples thread. If not, there's always the WL'd Under a Different ISBN thread. If you search for a wish listed book by title and see that there are several versions, including some with short ISBNs, you can add them all to your WL there. Another option is creating your own thread in the Book Bazaar to say I have these non-ISBN Guidepost books that are WL under ISBNs X, Y, & Z. Anyone want them for X credits? Good luck!
