I have 4 books that have different versions wishlisted, while mine copy is not. How can I let others know these are available, just not the versions that are wishlisted?

Thanks, Pam

Hi Pam -- this is from the Help Center:


When you post your book properly using its ISBN:

  • All members who are Wishing for other ISBN versions of the book will be sent an alert email by PBS.
    • The email will be titled "An item similar to your Wished-for book has been Posted.."
    • This email will contain a link that the Wishers can click to request your book.
    • If no one requests your alternate ISBN, that means that no one currently wishes for this version of the book.

I will also put a tag on the wish listed versions, something like "also under ISBN xxxx".  This will help direct the next member to your book, in case they are not fully linked.  

That said, please remember that large print and audio books are often released later.  So those versions will often be wish listed after the other versions are available.
