The Planet (the_planet) | 1 comments How do I add my book information to goodreads so that it has a working link to barnesandnoble.com ?

The problem is that ebooks submitted to barnesandnoble.com via Pubit are not searchable by ISBN. Even if you provide a valid ISBN when you publish your book at Pubit, it is not included in the book product details. Thus Pubit books are searchable only by the internal barnesandnoble ID, which is akin to Amazon ASIN for kindle books.

See for example
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

Its link to barnesandnoble fails, because it relies on the query by ISBN. The working link is
http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/?keyw...
where 2940013782891 is BN ID.

Can I add a barnesandnoble ID to my book details on goodreads?

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments A new edition of the book needs to be added with the B&N id in the ISBN13 field, the look up then uses that to look up on B&N.

Saying that the B&N link does not appear to work directly anymore since GR stopped importing from them. There is a redirect page, but the book then is found on BN
