There is a book by Jackie Collins coming out in October. I've tried over and over again to add it to my wishlist using the title, author, and/or ISBN #. So far the site will not recognize this book. Is there anyway to add it manually to the  wishlist?

What I do is put my shelf on Vacation Hold first. Then I post the book. You will get the screens to enter all of the data and set it up in the system. Once the book is set up, add it to your WL. Then go delete it from your bookshelf before removing the Vacation Hold.

Thank you !!!  I never used the wishlist before. I'm finding out that it is a dangerous thing. LOL

I have a Canadian book with an ISBN that doesn't come up in PBS either.  I'll have to figure out how to post it if and when I get around to reading it.
