I have the following books

Nora Roberts                                     Angels Fall               ISBN   9780786288298


Anne Rivers Siddons                         Homeplace              ISBN   0060157585


Michaels,Bostwick,Lamb, Wolf        Comfort and Joy       ISBN  9780739488713


Nora Roberts                                      Northern Lights          ISBN  9780739446898 

All of the above books are Large Print, but none show as large print in the system when I tried to list them.  How can I get them changed to large print???

If I understand this correctly Bertie, somebody needs to determine whether or not the Large Print editions were published under the same ISBN as regular editions or if the LP received their own ISBN.

If the ISBN is shared between regular and LP, you will need to post your books without an ISBN.

If the ISBN is not shared (unique to each edition) then you (or whoever does the research) should submit the information to the data correction team.

After a very quick glance, it appears Angel's Fall is Thorndike Press (LP?), Homeplace appears to be a mixed ISBN (HC & pb), Comfort & Joy appears at Amazon as HC LP, and Northern Lights also appears at Amazon as the Large Print edition.  SO...you might want to submit your list to Data Corrections, which might be under 'Contact Us' or another option is to contact a PBS member with the Data Team icon under their name.

Bertie, I'll check these out for you and let you know (plus edit any that need it).   If you (or any member) has this problem, the best method is to click the More Options button (next to the image on the main book details page) and then click  Edit Book Data from the drop-down menu.  That will bring up an editing screen with a 'Reason for Edit' box at the top for your message.

Since title changes and changes to or from Large Print have to be researched, you can just write a note stating what you would like us to change; then go to the bottom of that page and click the Submit Edits button.  It will come to a Book Data Approver to be researched and you will be notified of the outcome.

Thank you Anna, I will wait a few days to see if they have been fixed. Then I will post them.
