I went to post a book that I got from another swap site into my TBR list and it came up with a message that it had a valid ISBN, but was not listed in the system.  What do I need to do to be able to post the book?  Is it one that would be listed without an ISBN?

If you give it a few hours or a day even, the database will update and you will probably be able to post your book.  If you are in a hurry, you should be able to type in the ISBN and the system will prompt you to fill in the information for the book.
