Does PBS offer an option to wishlist any edition/publication of a book? Last I checked they didn't.

Is there any way to get around this other than listing several dozen ISBNs in a wishlist?

No, you have to add each different ISBN seperately, but you can choose to get notified when a different edition is posted into the system.

Some people just wishlist the first ISBN they find and move one.... some actually do want a particular ISBN for some reason... some will add ALL ISBNs for the book to their wishlist.  I frequently add all ISBNs for all wishlist books for myself and then go in and do a big cleanup when one of them is offered to me.  I just received Slaughterhouse 5 by Vonnegut and had more than 15 entires on my wishlist for it before I go it.

Just watch though about WL those 5 digit ISBN's.  They are PBS assigned numbers and most likely will not get posted again.  But then w/the new WL coming out soon we'll have unlimited WL.
