Ahh forgot a BCID!

I can't believe I made the "rookie mistake" of releasing a book with a prenumbered label without journaling or at least writing down the BCID! boo hoo. Just wanted to vent a little to someone who knows what the heck I am talking about!

Oh my, no idea what the title was of course, let alone the writer?
Now you just have to hope it will write home again :-)
But for now its feels like a book down the drain.
Fingers crossed for a JE :-)

If it was your prenum and you never journaled it at all - so it doesn't appear in the database - then that is tricky. If you know the range of prenums that it was from, you might be able to work it out by the process of elimination. (I only ever get prenums in groups of 10 - for the freebie labels - or groups of 25 for the Supply Store custom labels, so after using up the rest of the BCIDs in each group I could work out the lost one by viewing the prenum list on my profile. But if you tend to get lots of sets of prenums that you don't use up in order, and/or the 100-prenums-at-a-time option, it'd be harder to find the missing one.)

On at least one occasion I recall driving back to a release spot so that I could retrieve the BCID, but I don't know if that's feasible for your case. But I do understand the problem {rueful grin}!

I thought about that, I might do it, but it would take a while and i would hate to get it wrong...

Positive thinking: someone will find the book and journal it!
