Hi all,

I have just re-did my unpostable list on my profile page doing a linked reference to each book to it's listing either here or on Amazon...Fantasicfiction...ect. However I have come up on a hardback that is very readable, but borderlines post-able-ness(is that a word???lol) that isn't listed on any of these types of sites. I have found reference to it on the web in a few places, but nothing real good. So my question is...how to add a book to the data base, with out adding a book to my shelf? Anyone have experience with this?

If you have the ISBN for the book, just run a search on that ISBN.  If the book doesn't immediately pop up, give it an hour or so and search again and see if it's in the database.  Or, try adding the ISBN to your TBR list.  I've heard that works as well.

I've added a book to my TBR and it works well. It doesn't get added to your bookshelf and you can delete it once it's in the system.

I forgot to add the fact that it doesn't have an ISBN.
