Is it possible to add books without an ISBN number to your TBR Pile? 

Thanks for your help!

I have no answer to this question - the only thing that comes close is when you want to post a book without one.  This question might be better addressed to a Tour Guide by PM or live help.

I think that's what I'll have to do.  I've posted boooks to my shelf w/out, but there doesn't seem to be a way to add one without actually posting.  Thanks, though :)

No. The only way for a book to get onto your Reminder List is for it to be in the system already. If you cannot find it already in the system by searching the title, then you would have to post it to your bookshelf without the ISBN , then add it to your reminder list.

I'm actually looking to add it to my TBR Pile, but I assume it's the same thing.  Rats!

You can do it in a round-about way. Add it to your shelf (it shouldn't have a WL or get ordered right away since you just set it up). Then you can go to the book and select add to TBR from the More Options menu. Then go back a remove it from your shelf or put it on hold.

edit to clarify- the More Options button doesn't show up on your bookshelf listing, but once you click on the book you will find it.
