I filled out all of the information but forgot to change the "book type" from paperback to hardcover.  Is there a way to remedy this?

You could probably remove the book from your shelf and post it again with the proper information.  Changing binding types isn't part of the edit options (as far as I know), so you that might be the only way to do it.  It's no big deal, by the way, the non-ISBN listings are meant to be disposable.

It might let you edit it since it's  listing you created and PBS generated ISBN. Like Jimi says they are only supposed to be used once.  So if it won't let you change the ISBN-delete the book and then just create another listing for it.

Hello- Once you have posted a book without an ISBN there is no way to change the binding. Your only option is to delete the book from your bookshelf, then go in and re-post it with the correct information.
