Something's amiss... whenever I try to add "Beyond Grimm" to my library, I get stuck in a loop where the book can no longer be found. There's a record, with one review, here:
but attempts to "Add This Book" create a search where the book itself isn't found.
Can't review a book I can't add... help!
You can add the book manually if you can't find it in any of the databases.
ETA: I gather from looking at the catalog records of the other people who have entered the book that that is what they have done. As it's an ebook, I doubt you'll find it in any of the data sources.
Hmmm. I suppose, but won't that just mean multiple manual entries? Sloppy cataloging.
Not so long as the entry you add combines in (or is combined in) with the other entries, no. For eBooks not available via Amazon, often manual entry is the only way to get them in the system.
I've had the same problem with the "Kindred Spirits" book that I got as part of the March batch. I was able to add to my "Goodreads" library - which recognised it as an ebook. However, no matter how I attempt to add, including using the ISBN for the ebook loaded into Goodreads it wont come up.
I did add manually into my librarything shelf, read it, and reviewed it. However, I've won another book for April, and in checking my shelf it says I have still to review Kindred Spirits and that I need to add it. Which I have done, a month ago. I'm now worried that I may be "penalised" for the system not recognising that I have done what I am supposed to do, after not allowing me to do what it should!
>6 - Yours wasn't combined with the main entry; I've done that now, and when the script which checks for ER reviews runs next, it'll grab it. You're all set.
I've been having the same problem adding Beyond Grimm to my library. It's very annoying that the "Add to your library" button in the "Early Reviewer Books you've won" page doesn't work. This is the first book I've gotten through the Early Reviewers, and it seems to be more of a pain than a pleasure, not sure I'll bother asking for more.
