Why does the barcode scanner return a number that doesn't match the ISBN?

Answer

MOST books have a barcode immediately under the ISBN on the back cover that matches the actual ISBN number. However, there are many books have printed a UPC barcode under the ISBN instead. In most cases where this has been done, the ISBN barcode is printed on the inside cover of the book. Scanning THAT barcode will yield accurate lookup results.
