It's a new book but it's already on Amazon with an ISBN but it's not coming up here.  The early bird gets the worm as they say so I want to be the first to request it so I'll be at the head of the line.  I want to be the first but by the time it shows up here as it the past I'll be like number 4 and 5 on the list.

If you haven't tried it already, enter the ISBN in the search box and do your search on "All Books."

If an ISBN isn't listed in the system, oftentimes the act of searching for it will trigger the process by which ISBNs are added; I suggest you try your search again (as y2pk recommended) in a little while to see if the listing is still absent.  I've done this a few times and found myself first in line even after waiting a day or two to check.

Take the ISBN from Amazon and just put it into the search box here.  That should pull the book into the PBS system and you can WL it right away.  Feel free to PM me the ISBN if you have any problem and I'll see if I can't get it to add for you.

Finally found it.  Posted the second ISBN number and it came up.  Didn't come up when I searched the title or seached by the author's name.  I was lucky enough to be number in the queue.  Yay!  Could be a while until I get it.  It's a new release and a non fiction title too.

Denise...just click on her wishlist, click re-sort, sort by date, descending, and voila...there is is. Looks like a crafty book of some kind. :)

I know of one to be  released book that I have the ISBN and I've been searching on PBS and it has yet to come up.  I want to be first, too!   LOL!!  Someday it will surprise me and come up.

Thanks Cheryl!  Kay has an interesting wishlist...hard to drag myself away.  I may have to find more room on my wishlist now  wink

The Pretty Little Potholders book has some cute ideas, and I've made the oven mitt from the Mary Englebrit book (turns out very cute & pairs well with other potholders for gifting sets).
