I like all my books to be paperback and if there is a book I want and it doesn't have a paperback I'll go ahead and get the hardback, and those had pretty long wait lists, so last week  I decided to check if any of those had paperbacks available so I went to the barnes and noble website and got the ISBNS for the books I'm wishing for and just about all of them were in paperback and as a result of finding these the wait list was considerably shorter.  Since then I have gotten 10 wishlist offers for books I have been waiting forever for.  It's been exciting!

Yeah, if it doesn't matter about hardback or paperback you can usually get books faster in paperback.  It's very nice and some people don't realize this or just don't want paperback.

Go to Account / Settings /Email settings.

There is a box for I DO NOT WANT   -  Wish List - Other Versions

If you have this unchecked you should get an email when same books with different ISBNs get posted.
