I see it posted twice on your bookshelf.  Once with the ISBN# listed above and another time with a shortened temporary ISBN#, assigned to those books when they are posted without an ISBN#.

What type of sort is set up on your view of your bookshelf?  Are you sorting by author?  By Hold books only?

The ISBN listing doesn't have an author listed, so if you are sorting your shelf by author, it won't show up.  If you go to your bookshelf, in the wide yellow bar near the top, click on the "resort" button (which unfortunately doesn't transport you to a Club Med facility, no matter how many times you click it) and choose to sort by something other than "author", and you'll find both copies Hunter mentioned.

My suggestion would be to delete the non-ISBN listing from your bookshelf, and then click on the title of the ISBN listing.  On the book's info page, click on "more options" --> "edit book data."  Submit an edit adding the author info, and after it's gone through the approval process, the book will show up when you sort by author.
