anyone else have this issue?  I have 2 books on my WL that have one version correctly alphabetized but other versions seem to be randomly scattered throughout the WL.  One book is titled  "Steve Jobs" (his biography) and the other is "Explosive 18"  from the Stephanie Plum bail bondsman series.  I have never seen this happen before.

I had the same issue with "Explosive 18".  It seems to be putting it in alphabetical order as if the first word in the title is "Stephanie" and not "Explosive."  Is it showing up in the S's in your WL?

My "Explosive Eighteen" WL books are all over the place, too...

I've got two listed between K and M (9780755384976 and 9780739378229 ), one listed between N and O (9780307932501), and one betwen R and SH (0755384962).

I thought maybe Lula was "filing" them... devil

My other versions of "Explosive 18" are showing up in the  H's and L's.

Really the only thing to do about it is to send the ISBN in through Feedback via the Contact Us and ask them. The Team can look at the listing and see what is in the database that is causing it to be seen as starting with a different letter.
