I have a book I would like to post but when I enter the ISBN a different book pops up.  I found the book by using the search but the paperback it lists has 2005 as its publication date and the book I have has 2004.  My book looks just like the one in the picture.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

When posting a book, the Title, Author, Binding, and ISBN must match.  If you enter the ISBN and all of this information on the page matches your book, you can go ahead and post it - the publication date doesnt' have to match.  If any of those four critera are different though, you'll need to post it using the "No ISBN" option.

Publishing date doesn't matter but ISBN does.  You have to post it without an ISBN.

Publishers frequently reuse ISBN #'s and PBS will not change it in their system.  THe 1st book/binding that gets in here with that ISBN is the one they use.
