You can't list it with an ISBN then.  Try using the no ISBN feature or post it in the Bazaar.  Good luck.

The ISBN you gave for the Clara Barton book is 1 digit short. I've never seen an ISBN listed in the title like that before, either. However, searching for the title "Clara Barton and the American Red Cross" brings up several non-ISBN listings for that title, so it appears to be a common problem regarding that title. As Kellie said, you'll have to post it as a non-ISBN book. When doing so, remember to include as much information about the book as possible. Doing so tends to make non-ISBN listings more attractive to potential Requestors, and can help you to move the book more quickly from your shelf to someone else's :)

070097002232 is not a valid ISBN, its too short, and the book have linked is not posted by it as the link shows completely different 13 and 10 digit ISBNs, this ISBN is only listed in the title. There is a converter for 10 digit ISBNs to 13 under Member Tools that you could use if there is a 10-digit ISBN on the book somewhere, but I do not know about converting the 12-digit, maybe someone with the link to the check-figure calculators will come along.
