I am looking for a copy of Grease: The Fotonovel by Bronto Woodard. My daughter loves Grease and I had a copy of this as a child and I thought it would be great to get my hands on another!  Even damaged! Just let me know the extent.

PM me with Info!  Thanks

(4) No asking (or offering) more than "PBS price" for a book. For example, "I will pay 3 credits for this Wish List book" is a violation of this rule, as is "I will send you this book for 3 credits" if the book is worth only one credit on PBS. All bound books "cost" 1 credit each at PBS, and audiobooks "cost" 2 credits each. We don't want a "bidding war" for books, and it is not fair to cut in front of members who may have been waiting for a Wish List book for a long time. That is why offering/asking extra credits is not permitted.

The thing is, this book I am asking for is not on the Wish list and it is not posted at all, it has no ISBN # . I am sorry if I broke the rules about making an offer.  It wont happen again.  I can give 1 credit though. So, to anyone who has this book,  please let me know!

Kim - Because of the way the pbs ISBN lookup system works, if you can't find the book you're looking for here by title/author/etc, you should try elsewhere, see if you can find it on another system, and then use the ISBN from there. I always search for things first (after pbs) on bookfinder.com, which is a multisearch, looks at amazon, abebooks, alibris, and several others, and collates the info.

Anyway, by searching there, I found copies for as little as $16.xx, and also found the ISBN: 0897520009

Once you know an ISBN for sure, you can come back to pbs, enter it, and it will probably recognize it, even if it couldn't find the same book without a specific ISBN. Such was the case when I searched here with the ISBN above. So anyway, now it's on the system, you can officially put it on your wish list (or if you're impatient you can go to bookfinder.com).
