Christina | 76 comments Okay, maybe I'm just loosing it here but I've beent trying for an hour now to manually add a book, both using links and using a csv file - and nothing works... This is one place to find the book:
Can anybody tell me why this doesn't work? And why my csv file doesn't work? I looked at the sample file so many times and even tried creating a file with just isbn - and nothing works.
Please help!
Thanks, Christina

Christina | 76 comments Okay - I've manually added it now, gave up on the smart way of doing it and just typed it all in. But how do I add a cover??

Christina | 76 comments Oh my, oh my. It helps if you look at everything on a page now doesn't it?! I figured out the cover thing - still unsure about why I couldn't create a csv file or add the book by using a link... But the book is added, so that's the important thing!

Hi Christina,

The importer will only import books and ISBN numbers that we can find in our database or in a remote library (Amazon, etc). You will need to manually add any books we can't find. This is done this way for quality control of our catalogue.

We added that to the 'tips' on the import page, and sorry for the inconvenience!

Ritz (MaravillosoDesgarro) | 12 comments I do not find books added for me

Hello estimated friends of Goodreads, I have the following problem, that could not have been solved yet, though I asked for help also the group of Librarians

I have added manually four books, have included all the obligatory information his description and cover.

I have wanted to add them to a group, but, when I write the exact title or the complete name of the author does not give me the result (that I sknow that exists), the option of searching in goodreads instead of the option for fault amazon, and it gives me the result either.

The problem is. When I introduce the information of the books as exact title or name of the author in the cabin of search, it does not give me the result, they do not appear.

Try it that you see what happens.

These are the links of the books in cuestion:

Muchas gracias
Y Feliz Año a todos!!!
