I just posted a book to my shelf without an isbn because the isbn on the book doesn't come up.  There is another isbn inside the book that comes up as a hardcover, same cover.  I wanted to add the cover pic (more appealing than a blue box) but when I googled the isbn it shows not valid.  Can I use the pic from the hardcover?

I also accidentally posted the pic of the audio version- how do I remove it?

I am not really following if the book you posted was the Hardcover, but if either of the ISBNs on the book bring up the correct book (ISBN, Title, Author, Binding all match) then you can post the book by that ISBN. It doesn't matter if there is a wrong ISBN on the book, it just needs to have the correct one somewhere.

Usually to correct an image you just re-submit a correct one. I am surprised an audio pic was approved for a print book, but sometimes the no ISBN postings aren't watched as closely.

Book I posted is  a paperback but the hardback has the same cover.  The isbn on the back of the book doesn't bring up anything here, or anywhere else.  The inside isbn is for the hardcover, not the paperback.

I tried to resubmit but got a message saying the isbn not found.

I am assuming by cover you mean the artwork. If the artwork is the same why wouldn't you be able to use the artwork from the hardcover in your listing for the paperback?

I 'm not sure.  I tried to edit but since it has been given an isbn, it won't accept that isbn on the edit page- so I can't get to the book to edit it.

Could you try taking your origional listing off of your shelf and making a new one?

That seemed to work-  just have to wait for image approval, thanks
