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.

You'll always be behind me, trailing!"After a twenty-six-year-old woman unsuccessfully tries to hang herself in her bedroom, she begins to reminisce about her past loves. There was Brian, her first serious boyfriend, and then Cal, the one they called "Mr. Personality." But it's Peter, a famous, older author with whom she has been involved for three years, that she just can't quite let go. A conversation with her mother opens the window into her soul, helping her realize that she is not defined solely by her relationships, but something much deeper
