Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments An ISBN is the number that identifies your book from other books. It is your book's fingerprint so to speak.

Here is a good site to learn everything you ever wanted to know about ISBN numbers.

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a 13-digit number (it was a 10 digit number, but was recently changed to 13-digits) that uniquely identifies books and book-like products published internationally.

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments As an ISBN is in reference to published books...I would be curious as to why "fandubs" would require an ISBN?

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments Hey Eric...I am sure "buy now" is in there somewhere, even if only a subliminal message :]

message 15: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments Teachers have a way of being right every once in a while :}


message 16: by *JayJay* (new)

*JayJay* i always wondered why teachers need books to tell them the answers even tho they teach the subjects & we hv 2 memorize them...


message 17: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments Hey Now...teachers are human too...honest!

The downside of teaching in our current education system is that many teachers "have" to stick to a specific agenda. It is a state law. Thus, they have to "go by the book."

The more rebellious teachers, are the innovators. Those that find a way to make learning fun!

Oh, and BTW, I am not, nor have I ever been, a teacher, but I do know several men and woman who are teachers. They teach because they love what they do...'cause they sure don't do it for the money nor the glory :]

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments Hey Jay Jay,

Shame on your teacher...as good teacher is more than a babysitter, he/she expands your mind, makes you want to learn...makes you excited about going to class :]

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 185 comments Hey Toli,

I remember a couple of "great" teachers...mostly in college. Especially my English Profs.

Oh, and my fencing instructor...now she was a great teacher of life lessons: Before a match...always put on protective gear :]

Yet, I too can recall many, who were "just babysitting." Which is such a shame.
