ISBN's for our books?

The ISBN (International Standard Book Number)
Have I missed something on blurb?  How do we get ISBN’s for our books?
Actually, a better question: who do we get that number associated with our Blurb published books? Is it possible?


Let me aslo add; Lets fix the FORUM so I can Copy and Paste from Microsoft Word…without all the TAGS!

A quick search of the FAQS will reveal the answer.  I don’t see the inability to cut and paste from Word as a problem.  The hugh majority of posters manage just fine typing directly into the reply box.

rhoadester,

each country has its own agency for issueing ISBN numbers, the Blurb FAQ ISBN references will only take you to the US agency. You will need to find the Swiss agency if I understood your location right. I found the UK one (Nielson UK) by searching Google.UK for ISBN allocation.

So if I get an ISBN code and put it on my book, could I submit it to Amazon and sell copies that way, or how does it work?
