Scott | 21418 comments I haven't been able to find this book on GR, even searching by Amazon's ASINs (Amazon has minimal information this title themselves) :

I have a physical copy so I can enter all the correct information; how do I get started?

Michael | 262 comments Scott, you have to have Librarian status. If you look in Help it will tell you how to gain that status.

I'm assuming your not already a librarian, so I will add the book for you now, if somebody's not already done it by now!

Jan (janoda) | 140 comments You don't need librarian status to add a new book.
Go to 'My Books', At the top there is a bold 'add books' link, click it, then click on 'manually add books', and you're set to go! Make sure to add all info correct though, because to edit the info you will have to have librarian status I believe.

Also, here's the link:

Michael | 262 comments Thanks, Jan. Not realising that Scott could add books without being a librarian, I have done it for him (sorry, Scott):

Scott, is the edition you have the hardback or paperback? If the latter could you tell me how many pages it has, as I can't find that info on the internet.

Scott | 21418 comments I am a librarian, but I wasn't sure how to do it. Thanks for adding it for me.

My softcover copy is 229 pages. The softcover is signed and limited to 500 copies (unnumbered, but stated on the limitation page in the back.)

Michael | 262 comments If you're already a librarian then I'll leave it you to add the page count. Shout if you're not sure how. :-D
