ISBN as search option

Post by Catia »

Hi, sorry if I missed other post related to this issue.
I would find very useful an additional option when searching for books to add in bookshelves, a box where to put the ISBN and search the exact corresponding book.
I think it would be useful to have the ISBN shown on the list of books given as result of the research so you can pick the one you actually have.
If these options are already available and I was too dumb to find them, please forgive me and be so kind to show me where I can find this.
Thanks in advance

I was just going to ask the same thing! There are sooo many sites where you can discuss books, keep track of books read, contests and reading challanges that have this feature. I was suprised that we couldn't search or add books via ISBN.
Would make it that much more user friendly.
