I was lucky enough to find 3 hardcover wishlist books at the Goodwill store yesterday.  When I put the ISBN in to post them, they come up as paperback even though they are hardback....what should I do about this?

The ISBN's are (from back of book)

Well, to post them to your bookshelf you will need to post them as books without ISBNs because the binding doesn't match what the system has for those ISBN. You can offer them in the Book Bazaar as alternate version of wish list books and you can also tag the ISBN listings with something like "HardCover available under ISBNXXXXXX" once you have a PBS generated ISBN for your version.

I have seen a lot of this in the past year where the same ISBN is used for both the PB and HC versions--it drives me nuts (kinda like the little truck for DC that drives thru Hawaii to get from FL to MA!!!)

OR   ISBN  format will say "unknown"---what's that mean?? It's a book, not unidentifiable airplane food!!
