I'm trying to add a book I've written to my Careers profile to no avail.

The book has ISBN (978-84-615-9841-0). The book is written in Catalan and the ISBN was registered in Spain. A search in the Spanish database gives the correct result.

Here is the link to the search engine for Spanish books: http://www.mcu.es/webISBN/tituloSimpleFilter.do?cache=init&prev_layout=busquedaisbn&layout=busquedaisbn&language=es

Can I add my own book? How?

It looks like they just use Amazon as their source for searching for books, not any sort of actual database of all books with an ISBN. It appears if it's not on Amazon.com, you can't add it, at least at the moment.

Notice the explicit Amazon logo next to the link to add a book:

As well, all the results returned link to the product page for the book on Amazon.

Right, I thought that. I was expecting some alternative aside of publishing my book with Amazon. Thanks anyway. –  Fèlix Galindo Allué Nov 11 '12 at 8:27
