It seems there is a new method for inputting additions to our bookshelves.  In the past, I would put the ISBN number in and the book would automatically come up.  Now it asks me for the name of the book, the author, the dimensions of the book and finally, the image for the cover.  How do I get that?  The book is Finding Perfect by Susan Mallery.  It's a newly published book but when I put the name in for a search, the image does come up.  What am I doing wrong?

does your ISBN match the ones listed in the system already?  What you describe sounds like when you post a book without an ISBN.

Thank you!  I copied the number from BN site and for some reason it was incorrect.  Now I know if it doesn't come up automatically, I've made a mistake inputting the number.

Don't copy the ISBN from another site unless you're using it to add the book to your wish list. If you're posting a book to your bookshelf, you need to type in the ISBN that's on your own book.

If you post the book to your bookshelf using the wrong ISBN, you are likely to get a RWAP when someone receives the book.
