Jodi I'm trying to add a book for book swap and it is a paperback ARC. When I search for the ISBN, the info says it's hardcover. I want would-be swappers to know this is not a hardcover book. What can be done to fix this?

ISBN: 0446518298

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments It looks like the same ISBN was used for the paperback ARC and published hardback. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Abe Books all have this ISBN as a Hardcover edition. World cat does not specify.

You could add an alternative version (with no ISBN) with paperback instead of Hardback

This is indeed the recommended method for dealing with swappable ARCs.
