I just finished reading a book on my TBR list  (Kill Me by Stephen White) and tried posting it from there.  The posting process isn't working.   The ISBN showed up correctly, but it either isn't 'finding' the book or just isn't working period.

I've had this happen several times - when I go to post the book, it just doesn't show up, and I have to back out and insert the ISBN again. Sometimes I have to do this several times. It mostly happens in the afternoon.  Don't know why it happens, but eventually it will accept the book.  Other times, there's no problem, or I can post one or two books fine, and then the next one won't post.  They eventually do all post though.

That frequently happens to me on my iPad, never on my computer.

Did you try posting from the Post Books page instead of from your TBR? or, search the ISBN and post from the book details page?

I have been having the same trouble, and frequently, since 2/15. Nearly every book I try to post has the same issue. I just keep hitting the post this book (or whatever it says) button until it posts. It usually takes several tries, but I have had it take as many as 20 tries. Last night I had one post on the first try. It's been a while since that happened.

Yeah, Shannon, I tried all those ways.  Since I didn't have problems posting any other books, I sent in to PBS and they posted it with their magic powers!
