Lobstergirl Here's a strange one - ISBN 1605067199 on Amazon here

http://www.amazon.com/Story-Burnt-Nja...

won't import to GR.

vicki_girl | 2765 comments Maybe beacuse there's no author listed...? Just a shot in dark, it might be messing with the system somehow. You could always add it manually.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments That's probably the cause -- if a book record on Amazon is missing a piece of information that's required on GR then it won't import.

Lobstergirl Here's another one - won't import even though author is listed on Amazon.

I think the Amazon API may be flaky tonight. I couldn't get a book to refresh.

Lobstergirl I just imported a different book and it imported in Vietnamese.

I think I added that one manually.


message 11: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Strange, I know I added it manually but now the source is Amazon. Does refreshing overwrite the source of a manual add?
