Ikarus | 4 comments I would like to add a book that seems to share its ISBN (3704399981) with several other books from the same publisher.
For now I've added the book without the ISBN, but I would be glad if someone could add the ISBN to the listing, so that other people can find the book.

Here are a couple of pictures of the books that have the same ISBN

That is not possible. GR's database only allows one entry per ISBN. It can be added to the description, though.

Ikarus | 4 comments So if several books share an ISBN the book that by chance is entered into the Goodreads database at first gets the ISBN, and all other books get no ISBN?


❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) Yes, unfortunately. We do try to put the ISBN in the description for those books. Not great, but it's all we've got. :)
