I have a couple of Abeka readers to post, but I can't find any ISBN anywhere on the books.  I think they may be wishlisted but I don't know how to get them to the right person.  One is Windows to the World, 2003 edition and the other is the third edition of Of America 1.  I also have a kinda worn version of Salute to Courage that I would rather send as "unpostable" if anyone needs it.  The other books have a number under the bar code, but this doesn't seem to be the ISBN.  Anyone have any ideas?

I have posted Abeka items in the past. I've had to create a few entries, but I use the copyright or edition number to make sure I'm posting under the correct one. Abeka books don't have ISBNs, so copyright date is the 2nd best option. Also make sure the titles match. Abeka has so many test books, quiz books, techer test key, teacher text, it can get very confusing.

Thanks Paula, I appreciate the help.  I know how expensive all these materials can be, so if someone could use these, I would be thrilled.

If the book is wishlisted, then after locating the book, you can just press the "Post this book" button.  As Paula mentioned, definitely check the edition and copyright year first.  You can also post the books as a book lacking an ISBN number.  I along with some of my friends are always on the look-out for recent A Beka books, so someone will probably order it up pretty quickly.
