Deeds Publishing (deedspublishing) | 2 comments Hi, thanks so much for helping! We're a publisher with a personal goodreads page that adds our books to Goodreads as they come out. However, one of our titles, Stealing First (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...), has the wrong ISBN - it's missing a number at the end - and now we keep having trouble adding other books. We buy our ISBNs in bulk so because Stealing First is missing a number at the end, now anything that starts with the same digits is rejected automatically by Goodreads as 'taken by another book'.
Anyway, I need Stealing First's (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...) ISBN changed from 9781944193 to 978-1-944193-06-5.
Thanks!

Checking out...

Edit - weird the link now won't let me find the book. But the problem was that the ISBN was being entered in the field for 10 digit ISBNs not the field for 13.

Renske | 10600 comments There was already an edition with the full ISBN, merged the edition with the incorrect ISBN into the right edition.
The problem was created because the ISBN13 was put in the ISBN10-slot, so the last three digits were lost.
