So I like to listen to mysteries and thrillers on audio CD when I work or work around the house. I have some James Patterson books on WL for audio CD only. Also an Alexander McCall Smith book on audio cd only.  I don't want paperback, hardback or cassette. But I keep getting emails that another version is available.  I only want the CD version I have WL.  I don't want to shut the email off completely because if I have a paperback on WL and another edition of that paperback is posted I might want it.  I didn't check my email for a few days and I have 12 emails for each CD I have WL from PBS telling me there's another version available.  Am I going to have to just turn these emails off altogether? Can I even do that?

I think it's an all or nothing type thing, but I'll go look around : )

OK, I'm back.  I can't find any way that you could be selective about getting emails for this alternate version and not that alternate version.  I don't know a whole lot about programming, but from my itty-bitty knowledge that would be some serious programming for a site this size.  That said, if you decide that you want to turn off the feature completely, go to your account - click settings - click email - and put a check mark in the boxes for any mail that you don't want - click update.

Hope this helps : )

I had to turn mine off.  I would get about 6 a day on different versions.  I delete them.   They are back again, day after day.
