Has anyone else ordered a book and when it came, the description on the back of the book was  completely different than on the web site?  I ordered one that said it was set in Scotland but when it came, the back of the book was totally different than what I read on PaperbackSwap.

Hi Ann;

What's the ISBN of the book you received?

Yes, that's what is on the back of the book.  Nothing to do with Scotland!

I submitted the correct description using the Edit Book Description button under the More Options tab on the book page.  The description Andrea gave is on the publishers website.

Oh, ok. Never knew you could do that!  Thanks!

You just go to the book's page here on PBS and click the "more options" to choose "edit book data".  Then, you can submit a corrected description to PBS and they'll change the description.  You can also do that to add descriptions to books that don't have them.  Very handy and a good thing to do when  you discover a book with a way wrong description like this one.

Thank you so much.  Now I can repost that book because I really don't want it.
