Trying to register books (first time after a long time) and every time I type a UK isbn am getting not known.

Is this temporary?

How temporary?!!! Please fix asap. Thanks.

 

There are many threads about it. See, for example, https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/561548

 

That thread has more detail, but the immediate workarounds include:

Select "Google" as the search-database, and enter the title and author instead of the ISBN, as in: Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

That may bring up a valid entry, though that doesn't always work either, but at the moment it's a better chance than using the ISBNs.

If that doesn't work, you'll need to use the "skip search" button and enter all the fields manually. I find I have to do this more often in the late evening (eastern-US time), while at other times of day the search function works pretty well.

Hope that helps! (And I hope the lookup bugs get fixed soon!)
