I have a book I want to list but the ISBN number does not match any of those editions that are on members' wish lists.  Will they still be notified that a copy of that book (in a different edition) is available if they want to request it?  On this particular book, there are mulitple paperback editions with different ISBN numbers.  I hate to list my book  and no one request it when I know there are people wanting it.  Thanks.

If a book is listed that does not have a matching ISBN an e-mail is sent out telling members that a similar book has been posted to one on their WL.

But also, don't worry about it so much.  If there are a fair number of people on wishlists for other editions, it is probably a book that people search for fairly often, so  (providing there aren't many other copies of other editions of that title available in the system) you will probably get a request for it pretty soon anyway the next time a member searches for the title.
