Over 6 million ISBNs and ISBN barcodes are listed. The ISBN format was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISBNs are 10 or 13 digit numbers that uniquely identify a book by its title, publisher, and format. ISBN bar codes are just a bar code display of the ISBN number. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and were originally 10 digit numbers. In 2007, ISBN numbers changed to 13 digit numbers so the system wouldn't run out of ISBN numbers to assign. The ISBN number is typically found on the back cover of the book along with the ISBN barcode that represents that number. The ISBN number can also typically be found on one of the first few pages of the book where the publisher and copyright information is listed.
Each edition of a book and each format of a book has a different ISBN number. This is very useful when searching for the softcover edition or the hardcover edition of a book. It is also useful for college students searching for the correct edition of a college textbook for their university class.

Amazon Editorial Reviews
Single, bored, and not inclined to be creative, Paige Reese, writer and artist, browses the online personals and match making services on the Internet. She claims it's strictly for entertainment purposes. Ticked off with the editor of the magazine she writes for, afraid she's going mad because she talks to herself, Paige is primed to take the plunge when a friend urges her to respond to an ad instead of just reading them. She wonders if there can be a romantic encounter with a stranger met online just by scrolling through personal ads and then with the click of the mouse select Mr. Right and send off an email and wait for a positive response. What's the Difference?-is intriguing, funny, poignant, and outrageously hopeful. What's the Difference?-witty in the style of 84 Charing Cross Road, and delightful in words as Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail are on film. Sure to strike a chord of recognition with those aficionados of cyber introduction, and those who meet and mingle in conventional arenas, and wonder What's the Difference?
