I bought this ISBN to use for the cover layout of my book. It was low price to get for this purchase. I intend to get another one if I use Amazon or Lulu or someone else when it comes to sales of my book.

ISBN Services are easy to use; I’m very thankful about this as it is 1 level of complication removed from publishing. Registering the details online is just click-through and fill in the blanks, instead of having to furnish the author’s dental records as with some other places. Thank you ISBN Services for providing a great, easy to use service!
