I noticed that the newest paperback I posted is coming up as a hardcover. What should I do? Tell the person who gets it off my shelf or relist it or what?

Courtney,

You will need to post the book without an ISBN.

From the Help Center:

Go to the Post Books page
  • From My Account: click the Post Books tab
  • From anywhere on the site: place your cursor over My Account on the toolbar at the top of the site and click Post Books in the menu that drops down.
  • From your Bookshelf, click the link "Post Books" at the top of the page, in the yellow bar.
  • On the Post Books page:
    • Click the "Post a Book without an ISBN" link at the top of the page, in the yellow bar.
    • Enter the information about the book in the form that comes up:
      • Mandatory information includes: title, author, book dimensions, Subject (genre), booktype
      • Optional information includes: Large Print, Homeschool, Publisher, # pages, Back Cover Description (synopsis of the book content), Book Cover image.
      • Your Book Cover Image needs to be less than 5 MB in size, and in .jpg format.
When you are done, your book will be listed in the database with a customized listing that has a "short ISBN" or "PBS ISBN", which is the 5 or 6 digit number that PBS assigns in place of the ISBN to keep track of the book in the system.

How do you do that?

If I chose this is not my book option and it gives me the form to fill out for a new book will it let me list it that way?
