looks more like an ISBN number but this site says not a valid number. Book description & type makes it clear that it should be a hardback book.

Can't find this book on World cat or Amazon.

Where do I go to next? :)

Codex | 3400 comments The “ISBN” in the book page is a truncated 13-digit ISBN. Here’s a link that at least confirms the ISBN (10- and 13-digit), matches the cover, and the format: hardcover: http://www.abebooks.com/9780989602877... . :-)


Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 5760 comments Cool. :) & Abebooks is an acceptable source for book data. The manual says that we should almost never change isbn numbers. Can I in this case?

Yes, because the ISBN in the GR book page is obviously truncated (as confirmed by AbeBooks), invalid (as confirmed by an ISBN converter), and therefore of no use to anyone.
