ISBN only addition of new books

Post by OVLHS_Secretary » Wed Aug 29, 2012 6:29 pm

I`m getting the distinct impression that this Book Organiser is simply a selling tool for Amazon as we can seemingly only add books in our collection if:
a) They have an ISBN.

b) They are currently offered for sale on Amazon.

This severely limits the effectiveness of this software as I have many books that pre-date ISBn registration, many out-of-print, including several titles that we have published recently, which whilst they have sold out, are still available to query data on on a reputable database system like PubWeb.

So why is aonly amazon used and why can`t we manually enter books into this system - is it simply because it is being pushed by Amazon?!?!?!?!?!?!
