I have an Advanced Reader Edition of  Money, A Memoir : Women, Emotions, and Cash by  Liz Perle (papberback).  I can't post this because it is an ARC but this book is in very good condition and currently has 8 people wishlisting on PBS.

Sorry, this ARC has been claimed. However, I still have...


I have a really nice looking copy of The Horse's Mouth by Joyce Cary (paperback) that doesn't have a ISBN.  It is from Time Life Books.

Both books are in very good condition, but are unpostable in PBS.  Anyone who places an order with me can select one of these to be included free with their order (First come, first served, just place an order and PM me the title of the extra book you want.)

Also, I have a standing offer of 3 books for 2 credits on everything in my bookshelf.  Feel free to take advantage of this deal and add one of the above unpostables to make it 4 for 2.  I have a pretty eclectic mix so take your time to peruse my collection. 

Also, I am happy to email you a picture of any of these books if you want to see them (just remember, first one to place the order and PM the request will be honored.)

Jon, just FYI - you can post books without an ISBN.

From the Help Docs:

Non-ISBN items are items Posted by a member onto his or her bookshelf using a customized (not pre-existing) listing.  This is necessary when:

  • The book being posted has no ISBN
  • The book does have an ISBN, but the PBS database is using that ISBN for another version (binding type or Large Print)  of the book
  • The book does have an ISBN, but the PBS database is using that ISBN for a completely different book (this is rare, but it does happen that publishers reuse ISBNs) 
  • The book does have an ISBN, but the PBS database does not include a listing for it.

A book that is posted using the Post Book Without an ISBN feature will be listed on PBS with a "short ISBN" (usually 5 or 6 digits).

The posting member created this listing using the Post Books Without an ISBN link on the Post Books page, entering the information manually that applies to his or her specific copy of the book (this information includes book dimensions and book description).  This means that:

  • Non-ISBN items (Items listed with "short" (5-digit) numbers in place of the ISBN) cannot be edited using the Edit Book Data link at the bottom of each page on the site.
    • This is because each "non-ISBN" item was posted into the system by the member who had that specific copy of the book, when her book did not match any pre-written listing in the system.
      • Thus, each "non-ISBN" item represents one copy of the book, and unless you have that exact copy that was posted using that listing by the original poster, the information (eg, book dimensions) about your copy of the book may not apply.
    • This also means that for a posting member  who posts a book without an ISBN and makes  a typo/mistake in doing so, this cannot be edited after submitting the listing: the listing will need to be removed from the bookshelf and reposted correctly.
