220 Thanks :)

220 My problem isn't about creating an alternate edition. I guess my question simplified is: do I link it with the book that has that ISBN already, or with the book that has the same title?

220 I own a book called Father Brown (selected stories) by Wordsworth Classics pub date 1992, with 288 pages, ISBN 1853260037 (also as one might expect a completely different cover)

When I input that ISBN, I get Wordworth Classics The Complete Father Brown for 797 pages and pub date of 2006.

Sure, both are Father Brown, but my copy doesn't have all the stories. Should I still create an alternate edition for the ISBN on the above book, or should I add it as an alternate edition (without using the ISBN?) on the Father Brown Selected Stories book found

220 I had that problem too then someone told me the books did end up combining.

220 I don't understand. They weren't when I wrote the message...
Thanks for checking though

220 I tried to combine these two books, but they don't seem to want to be friends. I've never had combining issues before, so I'm not sure what's going on.

220 Done
220 The first one I believe is Norwegian. At least the publisher is.

I can't help with the other two though

220 Yep, you can provide your own file for the cover.

220 Having just packed all my books for a cross-country move, I can say that both UK and US have multiple size of 'mass market' paperbacks and 'trade' paperbacks.
For example, my Bernard Cornwell collection alone has 6 different paperback sizes (thickness, height, width/depth). I don't think either term is specific enough to identify what size a particular book is.

I have square paperbacks, I have tall pocketbooks, I have short pocketbooks. I have paperbacks that are not as wide as most, and I have some that are larger than most hardcovers.

If there is going to be a choice of selection, then it must be vast to encompass everything, otherwise, keep it simple and use just the term paperback and allow people to view the sizes that the librarians add.

On a side note, I have hardcovers that are the size of pocket books, but we don't distinguish those by 'size'.

220 I don't know if you have any, but cookbooks and dictionary/reference books count.
220 Got it.

220 If You Believe in Love require saving and I don't have enough information to add it. I'm not at all versed in e-books.
I added some of the covers, I think someone else was adding others. I did those I could :)

220 I'm unable to pull up Staci Stalling as an author. Is there perhaps an initial?

220 Unfortunately, we are no longer unable to use data from Amazon or its affiliates anymore. Would you have another source for the cover?

The reason some of the covers are gone is because of the fact that they are from Amazon. They will be uploading covers from other sources over the next week, but for the moment they have to unload all the Amazon data.

220 No worries. I can't speak for others, but I'm quite enjoying it
Jan 30, 2012 07:16AM

220 Done :)
Jan 30, 2012 07:03AM

220 Done
Jan 29, 2012 08:46PM

220 Thank you. They're both done now :)

220 I tried to do this, but when saving the images, they are together. Is there a link to separate covers?
