Johnny (johnnyzevahc) | 63 comments I'm reading a book called The Complete Guide to Fasting by Jason Fung with Jimmy Moore. The ISBN is 9781628600018, but when I enter that ISBN in Goodreads, it goes to another book titled Against All Grain. The ISBN is wrong. Against All Grain should be 9781936608362, not 9781628600018, which is the correct ISBN for the fasting book I'm reading. Please fix.

Thank you!

Arenda | 19915 comments Sometimes an isbn is re-used by a publisher for a different book. In this case the Kindle edition of "Against All Grain" (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...) was influenced by a bug a couple of years ago that added isbn's to editions that already had an ASIN. Saving that record (without making changes) removes the isbn from such editions, which is policy to do for the editions that were influenced by that bug.
Since the isbn is no longer attached to that edition, you should be able to add the other book now with isbn 9781628600018
