I was going to post a hardcover children's book. I put the ISBN number in the search at the top of the page first just to see it on PBS. It shows up as a paperback. Why? What do I do now?

As binding is one of the four criteria that must match when posting (along with title, author and ISBN), you must enter your book as if it does not have an ISBN.

Sometimes publisher's reuse ISBN #'s.  Use the Post Without An ISBN option.
