Not sure if I am doing something wrong or what -

I created a Book List.  I added 4 books to it, then realized that the last book I added was the audio instead of the hardback, so I tried to delete it with the red x on the right side.  It wouldn't delete.  I saved the books I added so far and tried to delete again.  Still there.  So I decided to leave it and typed in the name of the next book I wanted to add.  About 20 minutes ago, I added the same book to another list with no problems.  Now on this list, it says it can't find any matches.  So I typed in the author's name.  Still no results.  So I tried another book.  Same thing.  Did I break my list?  Anyone have any ideas on how I can fix it?

eta: I was able to delete the book from my list, but I still can't add anything.

Try doing a hard refresh (CTRL + F5) and then adding by the ISBN.

I was able to add it by ISBN, but it takes a lot longer to add books by ISBN instead of just typing in the title.  I'm still curious as to why it just suddenly stopped working when I had contributed a few books to a list, created my own list with 10 books, then added 4 books to a second list just by the title and now it won't let me add by title anymore.

It's a brand new feature and apparently all the bugs are not worked out yet.

I have reported one issue myself, I've seen others posting questions/issues.

I woudl report it if you are seeing weird things, so that they can get more of the bugs worked out.

Jenna -- Same thing happened to me. The first few days with the new features, I was able to create/edit lists by inputting the title -- but then it just stopped working and now the only way for me to add books is with the ISBN.  I've deleted my lists and decided not to create any more.  Too much work if I have to find and enter ISBNs. Presumably, the glitches will be resolved soon.

I did report it.  I just asked here to see if maybe someone could tell me if maybe I did something wrong because it was literally one minute that it was working fine and the next it wasn't.
