There is a new Kim Harrison book released 02/28/08.. I want to put it on my WL. But it's not coming up on search. How do I get the info added?

 

Well.. nm.. It's in the system now. Maybe I did something wrong the 1st search

type the title and author into amazon.com and it will tell you the isbn # - search for the book that way here and it should appear.

I've noticed some flakes with the search function.  Unfortunately, when I reported it, I went and deleted the book that was the example from my shelf and couldn't remember enough details to put it back to illustrate the problem.  Searching on half the words in the title worked, but searching on the other half didn't.

Apparently, sometimes a first search for a book won't bring it up.  But once someone has searched for it, the system "learns" about the book and then will find it on the next search.

When this happens, I find searching with the ISBN will bring it up.  Also the system is weird.  If you have one letter off it'll bring up all kinds of other books but not the one you want.
