Has anyone been able to find 'Heart of the Matter' Emily Giffin's new book on here yet? Is there a certain way to get PBS to recognize not-yet-released books if they aren't in the system? I can't wait to get this on my WL. :)

usually when a book appears on Amazon, PBS will recognize the book within 24 hours when someone looks it up in the system. i say usually b/c i've been having trouble for several weeks of putting books on my WL that come out in 2010. they've been on amazon for a while but PBS isn't recognizing them at all. i think there might be a glitch somewhere...

I have a few on my WL that come out in 2010. But when I went to B&N.com, they had NO record of the Emily Giffin book. When I went to Amazon, it's weird. When I type it into their field at the top, the prompt recognizes it before I even type the whole book title in. This makes me think they know the name and therefore have record of the book. But the search results don't bring it up at all, only that it was excerpted in her previous one. There really may NOT be an ISBN for it yet, esp if it's not until late late 2010 (the ones in 2010 I have on my WL are sometime between Jan - June.)

The book is coming out July 22, 2010 and, while it does have an ISBN, for whatever reason, it is not recognized by PBS right now.
