Displays a cover image of a book with a link to Google Books based on a supplied ISBN-10 or ISBN-13.
I get a 'Warning: file_get_contents ... : failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden' Error in my logs and no books are displayed. Why is this happening?
Your web-site has been configure not to allow outgoing HTTP requests and you have 'Use Google API' enabled.
Please de-select the 'Use Google API' option to use the direct connection instead.

Is there a way to get this plugin to do a library of all of your books into WordPress?
It's not currently possible with this plugin, no.

This would likely require its own database table to do properly, as well...
