What is an ISBN?
The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a 13-digit number that uniquely identifies books and book-like products published internationally.
Why buy an ISBN?
ISBNs are linked to essential information allowing book-sellers, and readers, to know what book they are buying, what the book is about, and who the author is. ISBNs are the global standard for identifying titles. ISBNs are used world-wide as a unique identifier for books. They are used to simplify distribution and purchase of books throughout the global supply chain. Most retailers require ISBNs to track book inventory. Without an ISBN, you will not be found in most book stores, either online or down the street from your house. Getting an ISBN is the first step in self-publishing a book to insure that your book is not lost among the +700,000 titles published a year in English alone.
Having an ISBN barcode on the back of your book that includes the book price allows bookstores to scan your book directly into their point of sale.
