Vikas Hazrati | 1 comments I would like to search for a book using the API and as a part of results also get the ISBN of the book. I do not seem to get that with
val SEARCH_BOOKS_URL = "http://www.goodreads.com/search.xml"

Should i be using another API?

I did see isbn coming back in the example page for http://www.goodreads.com/api/book_url/ but that does not seem to be working any more.

Eric Lin (ericlin) Hi Vikas,

You are correct that we currently don't provide the ISBN in the API call that you used. We're looking into adding it.

We're also looking into the issue with the http://www.goodreads.com/api/book_url/ api call listed on our example page. I'll post here when we have more info.
