Paige | 3 comments I am reading a book that is not found in the Goodreads Library:
Things I Didn't Learn In Medical School: Tough Lessons from a Lifetime of Practice [Paperback]
by Gary L. Fanning, MD
How can I get this added?
Thanks in advance.


message 2: by Cloudedleopard (new)

Cloudedleopard | 139 comments Do you have an ISBN for this book or a non-amazon, non-seller's link to it (e.g. publisher)? That would be great to know in order to add the book...


message 3: by Paige (new)

Paige | 3 comments The ISBN listed on the back of my book:
978-1-4691-4248-7

Here is a link for the publisher that lists many other ISBNs:

message 4: by Cloudedleopard (new)

Cloudedleopard | 139 comments I added a rough first version of this book:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

So if any additional information is available it might be added to this edition. Esp. I didn't find a cover image, exept on Xlibris..

Nostalgia (_Nostalgia_) Hello, could you please add this book:
"Mary :A Fiction"
by:Mary Wollstonecraft
RRP £27.99
ISBN: 1421958805
ISBN13: 9781421958804
Publisher Indypublish.com
Format Paperback
Publication date 17/11/2005
Pages 116
Published in United States

Mary: A Fiction is the only complete novel by the 18th-century British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. It tells the tragic story of a heroine's successive "romantic friendships" with a woman and a man. Composed while Wollstonecraft was a governess in Ireland, the novel was published in 1788 shortly after her summary dismissal and her momentous decision to embark on a writing career, a precarious and disreputable profession for women in 18th-century Britain.

Tawny Stokes (tawny_stokes) | 1 comments Hi there, I'm trying to create a giveaway for the print edition of an ebook that is already listed on the sight.

Demon Whisperer
Tawny Stokes
ISBN-10: 1470043084
ISBN-13: 978-1470043087
Paperback: 294 pages
Publisher: CreateSpace (March 1, 2012)
Language: English

Thanks.

Tawny Stokes
“Tawny Stokes has created a brilliant paranormal world within our own. There are demons, witches, zombies, and all sorts of crazy creatures that occupy our world. The mythology Stokes has created for Demon Whisperer blew me away, and I simply cannot wait to read more about Caden, since I want to visit this world again, as soon as I can!” – Alex, 15, Electrifying Reviews


During a year-long coma--literally spent in hell--seventeen-year-old Caden Butcher developed a special power. He can speak to demons in their own language. Awakening with this new ability, Caden takes over the family exorcism business and becomes known as the young whiz-kid exorcist to the stars, obtaining most of his work from Hollywood. But what others don't know is the exorcisms are all staged with the help of his best buddy, Dantalion, a demon he met in while he was in hell.

When an exorcism goes wrong, Caden discovers the demon inside a teen girl is not your normal malicious entity, but an adversary from down under who is hell-bent on Caden’s destruction because of what Caden did to him while in hell.

Now with the help of Dantalion and Caden’s girlfriend Aspen, a skilled necromancer, Caden must track down the rogue demon before he can expose Caden as a fraud and end his reign as the one and only Demon Whisperer.

Pixelina I am reading now a book that is not on any database and that does not have an ISBN number.
'Aum Tarot; An introduction to the mysticism of Tarot'
Author is listed as Dr. Kristin Jonell Parikh. Published by Ayur-Veda, Malmö, Sweden 1999
It is in English, softcover, 82 pages.
With it in the set is a pack of 78 tarot cards created by the same Kristin Jonell Parikh.

Devorah Fox (devorahfox) | 14 comments Paula, you're a champ, thanks so much! I've been reading about the lack of access to the Amazon database but didn't know how to proceed.
The ASIN for the Kindle edition is B006L5O1JE.


message 49: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments Ok - ASIN added, I made the assumption the covers where the same for both editions. If not please post a link to a non bookseller site where we can pick it up from.

In addition your other book does not have a cover, if you provide a link for that we can add the cover also.

Claiming your author profile can take few days for the approval process


message 50: by Devorah (new)

Devorah Fox (devorahfox) | 14 comments The covers are the same for both editions and I've added the book to my profile.
As for our non fiction books, GoodReads found two of our titles, but not the book covers or other titles, all of which can be found on our business blog at http://blog.bumper2bumpertruckbook.co....
By the way, how does GoodReads feel about smartphone apps? We have three educational apps and are working on our fourth.
