Hey guys. I have the newest, 2011 edition, of this book. Because it's a "hand" posted book by us members, because it's not in the system, those of you wishing for older editions are not being notified of the newer edition. Just wanted to share with you guys that I do have this book on my shelf, in case some of you folks are still looking for the older ones that are not posted. The actual ISBN is not posted on the site, but it is provided in my description. Thanks for checking out this thread. Please check out the rest of the great reads on my bookshelf as well. Happy reading!

If your book bears an ISBN Ashley, there is no reason to post it as a book without an ISBN, you can add it to the system by its ISBN so that people can start wishing and requesting it through the ISBN instead of the PBS generated short ISBNs making that impossible. Go to Post Books instead of trying to post it by searching for it. When you enter the ISBN on the Post Books tab, the system should recognise it as a valid ISBN, but not in the system and open a screen to allow you to enter all of the relevent data. Once you've done that, it will be added to the system by the proper ISBN an people will be able to start finding it that way :) It won't link to the short ISBNs, but people who know the newer edition exists will be able to find you.

Unfortunately, when I typed in the ISBN, that wasn't an option. I had to "hand" post it. Hence, my dilemma. Thanks for the suggestion though. :]

Yeah, the number you have listed in the description is not a valid ISBN. All 13 digit ISBNs will start with 978- so with 090- the system wouldn't recognize it to open the window to post it.  That's to bad, always nice to get books set up in the system by their ISBN so people can find you have them.

No kidding. Especially since members have this book wish listed, but older versions. You'd think that a newer version would be more desirable. :[ But they won't be getting an email reminder about this one. :/ Bummer. Hopefully they'll check the forums though.

The book has been requested and is on its way to the user. :]
