If it isn't coming up by ISBN, you'll have to post it as a non-ISBN item.  Your edition could be different from others in the system, if it isn't coming up by ISBN, or what you have doesn't match the ISBN.

not sure what you mean by you can't find the book....are you using the ISBN number?  perhaps you have an edition that isn't recognized by PBS?

or are you trying to pull the book up using the search feature?  If you are doing that perhaps you are looking at only posted books and not all books?

if you are doing it by the search feature and not by ISBN, then when you put in Second Chance in the search feature it should bring up 1870 books or so.  in the upper left above the books there is an advanced search feature.  Click on it and Second Chance should be in the keywords, put this in the title and put Jane Green in the author field and 3 books will come up but you have to be looking at ALL books and not posted books because there are not any posted right now

Does the book have an ISBN#?  If not then you have to post it w/o an ISBN#-It's pretty easy to do. If it doesn't have an ISBN, do not just pick one that looks the same and post it as that book.  Sometimes on older books or book club editions, the ISBN is on the publishing page instead of the back cover.
