Sometimes if a book does not have a valid ISBN barcode from the publisher, it will not scan. Then you will just need to add the title manually. There are a few different ways to manually enter titles into your library. 

  • On the app, simply type in an ISBN (can be any value, you can use N/A), and the title of the book, then hit Add. 
  • On the website, underneath the Library drop down you will select Add Books. The book will show up in the library as “No Title Available” – if you have your library sorted by Title alphabetically (using the little arrows on the top blue bar) That blank book should show up right at the top. Then you can click edit (to the left) and add all the information.
