    Great comment, Michael. Much more illuminating and accurate than the linked article.Bowker is an antiquated system that gouges indie authors and small publishers, and has somewhere between zero and negligible value. I like Michael’s idea – start with a base ID number then just add a 1 for hardcover, 2 for paperback, 3 for ePub, etc.I have never once missed having my &#w280;o8nࢭ ISBN, or regretted accepting Smashwords’ offer to provide me with a free one (to get my books into those few places that require them).
