I just finished reading a book that has a few wishers and I was going to post it in the system.  I entered the ISBN in the search box above, just to see if it was WL'd or not, and when I did, I noticed that the book desciption is written entirely in Spanish.  The book I have, however, is not written in Spanish; it's in English.  I did verify several times that I had entered the correct ISBN (I did); but now I'm paranoid to post it.  I hope that the people wishing for my copy aren't expecting a spanish translated copy.  What should I do? Thanks!

If the description on the back of your copy is in English then it sounds like that Spanish description was incorrectly entered.  What I'd do if you have the time is re-type the description using the "edit book data" link at the bottom of the page.

Sometimes descriptions get pulled automatically from other places on the web, such as Amazon, who is notorious for not having edition-specific descriptions.  As Lisa said, feel free to edit the description appropriately or, if you're not comfortable doing so, drop me a PM with the ISBN and I'll have a look (I'm on the data editing team).
