missing books?

I added a second copy of Listening to the Stars: Jocelyn Bell Burnell Discovers Pulsars last night. And I don't see it anymore. I think there should be other books that I added since Jan. 7, and the lastest book I see added to my collections is listed as Jan. 7. Help? I am pretty sure they were all there yesterday when I looked at "My books". I double checked that I am looking at all collections. In any case the second copy of the Jocelyn Bell book does seem to be missing. Any idea what might have happened?

I'm seeing Listening to the Stars in your catalog, but it shows as having been entered on August 31, 2023. Were you adding a second copy?

Oh, never mind. I should have read your post more carefully, because you say right there that it's a second copy. I guess I need a second cup of caffeine.

yes, I was adding a second copy. I added it through the phone app, and it seemed to work, and I have not had trouble with adding though the app. Maybe that addition just didn't work, and that is the only one "missing". It has been a crazy week for me.

I can try adding it again through the app, but I didn't want to muddy the waters yet.

>4 al.vick: Hmm... "it seemed to work" - did you scan-to-add the book, or did you run a manual search and then add it? What confirmation did you get after adding it? What data source/s are you searching on the LT App (from the Home > Account page)? What type and version of the app do you have (iOS, version 1.2.3, etc.)? I can try and see if anything is awry.

I scanned it, and it did find the book finally, but I don't remember the actual confirmation. Used Amazon as a search, it's where I bought the book from anyway. I have a iPhone 12 mini, IOS 17.1.2. What version of the app? Not sure. It's up to date on my IOS as far as I know. I will try scanning it again...Seemed to work this time. I see it in the catalog now. Must have been some one-off problem in finding/adding the book last night.

>9 al.vick: Hmm, ok! Thanks for the note, it's definitely worth keeping an eye out if it crops up again. Glad you got your book added, finally!
