Best and easiest way to list O'Reilly Media e-books, etc at LibraryThing

What is the best and easiest way to enter my collection of O'Reilly Media e-books, etc into Do I have to enter them all from scratch, manually? If I have to do this (manual entry), is there a source for book cover art I can legitimately use for the titles I manually enter?

I now have an extensive collection of O'Reilly Media (and some other publishers purchased through O'Reilly) e-books; looking at my O'Reilly account, I counted 45 distinct titles and that was just counting up through titles beginning with "B". I also have some videos and some print books as well.

I just acquired an account at (, and I would like to enter the various e-book titles (and ideally the video and print titles) into there, so people can see what I have.

I started with the first title I currently have, as shown in my O'Reilly account, "#tweetsmart" by J. S. McDougall ( However, the ISBNs shown for the e-book variant, e.g. e-book ISBN: 978-1-4493-0910-7 and ISBN 10: 1-4493-0910-0, were not found in their system. (Both of the ISBNs for the print variant *were* found.) I ended up entering this title manually with at least basic information, taken from the "Product Details" section of the shop.oreilly page for the book (see

Obviously I would prefer to not have to do this for all the titles in my collection. However, this example (which admittedly is only a single example, and perhaps not representative) is not filling me with confidence that many of the e-book titles will be found.

Is there anything O'Reilly can suggest which will allow me to do this as easily (and correctly) as possible? Note that I do *not* want to claim I possess print versions of these titles when I do not actually possess print versions of them (there might be a few instances where I had a previous print version and bought a duplicate e-book version, of course).

Thanks for any help or advice you can provide concerning this issue. I look forward to hearing from you.
