Annie Neugebauer (annieneugebauer) | 16 comments I’m trying to manually add the Texas Poetry Calendar 2011 (of which I’m a contributing author) but the error message “ISBN has been marked as ‘not a book’” comes up.

Vicky (librovert) | 2459 comments I looked through the NAB author for it, but couldn't find it. Whoever NABd it either changed the title to Not a Book or hit the NAB link on the edit page.

You'll have to contact Goodreads and get them to find it from the back end, the NABs aren't accessible to librarians.
