Lori | 24 comments Having just got a new e-reader I am now adding a number of free Google e-books. These are the ones scanned and processed by Google, not someone else.

I am having trouble finding these editions in the GR database. I also am having trouble finding the publishing info (ISBN or ASIN numbers) which might explain my troubles.

Could someone let me know how Google e-books are treated? I'm sure the information's somewhere, I just can't find it.

I don't believe they have ISBNs or other identification numbers.

Lori | 24 comments I'll get started on it - eventually. Is there anyone (here at GR or elsewhere) trying to get #s for these books?
