I found a paperback book on Amazon, copied the ISBN and searched/wished it in PBS.  Then I looked up the hardback version on Amazon, got the ISBN and searched/wished on PBS. 

Thing is, they both say "hardback" at the book type when I know the one ISBN is for paperback.  I even copied it and went back to Amazon and did a search just using the paperback ISBN.  Sure enough, its the paperback.

Check out my wishlist for "The Omnivore's Delima..." and you'll see what I mean. 

How can this be fixed?

It probably can't be. If there is a book listed in the database with that ISBN be it wrong or not, they will not change it. If you find it listed anywhere else in anyother database with that ISBN/binding combo, they will not change it. It simply stays.
