Why are there so many books with 'no image available'? Is that just the nature of the beast or is it in the process of being corrected. It's somewhat off-putting when browsing someone's bookshelf and it's mostly 'no image available'

I posted this on the wrong forum before. Sorry for the double post.

I would imagine it's because members that enterred the new isbn did not include a photo. You shouldn't let that bother you as the image you see may not even be the image on the book you receive.

You can almost always find the image off Amazon. I just save it, crop off the white area & submit it. They're usually up within 1-2 days.
