I have 2 copies of the same book, The Queen of the Big Time by Adriana Trigiana. How do I post that I have 2 available?

From the Help Center:

Can I post multiple copies of the same book?

No. We allow a member to Post only one copy of a book at a time.

  • If you have two versions of a book (same title but different ISBNs):
    • you may post both, as some members will request different versions of the same book through Wish Lists, etc.
  • But duplicate ISBNs cannot coexist on your bookshelf.
  • You may post one copy at a time
  • Once you have mailed the first copy you can post another copy.
  • This rule is in place to give all members a chance at getting their copies requested.

One at a time, as mentioned above.

When the first copy is requested and you have printed the shipping label and mailed it, then you can click on the "Mailed" button, At this point, the system will allow you to then post the second copy.

I have had two copies of a book posted at the same time, but they have different IBSNs. Even though the book is the same, they are different versions, usually printed by different publishers, in different years. What you cannot do is post a book under a different ISBN then it has on its cover or inside page, as you risk the requestor giving you a RWAP, especially if the requestor is looking for a specific version under a specific ISBN.
