Lynna Merrill (LynnaMerrill) | 9 comments Hello, I am a new fantasy author, and I have just joined Goodreads. I have three books, and I see that Goodreads lists two separate editions for each (a Kindle and a Barnes & Noble e-book edition for each book, and for some reason only the Kindle editions have cover images). Will a librarian please merge the two editions for each book and keep the cover images? It will be greatly appreciated.

Here are the links to the books:

Vicky (vnorthw) | 2420 comments Lynna,

The books are already properly combined, because the Kindle and Nook versions have their own ID numbers (ASIN and BNID, respectively) we keep both of them so that people can mark the edition they have.

I did add the covers to the nook editions though.

I noticed that you removed the ISBN numbers from the Nook editions. For future reference - while the "ISBN10" that is imported is erroneous, the "ISBN13" that starts with 294 is actually the BNID number for the Nook book and needs to stay so that the books link properly to the B&N site.


Lynna Merrill (LynnaMerrill) | 9 comments That was such a quick response! Thank you very much for your help, Vicky.


Vasha7 | 83 comments Please merge this edition into this one.


Vasha7 | 83 comments And another: please also merge this edition into this one.


Paula (Paulaan) | 4356 comments Got 4 and 5


Vasha7 | 83 comments I'm not sure why this edition exists, without an ISBN, a cover, or even a publisher given. I suppose it should be merged with this one, another paperback from the same year.


Paula (Paulaan) | 4356 comments Got 7


Olena (olena_i) | 5 comments Please, combine:
http://www.goodreads.com/work/edition...
and
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11...

or, maybe it's actually a good decision to merge http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15... and http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11..., only to retain the spelling of the latter (Zhizn i Sudba is merely a trasliteration, there's no book with such a name actually, so I think it's better to have the proper name in Cyrillic, people are more likely to search it by its real name).


vicki_girl | 2754 comments Re msg 9: changed spelling and merged. :)

S. Townsend | 2 comments Could you please combine the 2 editions of Hammer of Thor:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12... and
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...

and (I hope) each edition gets both reviews!

Thank you!

The two editions are combined (and have been since September 6).


Abcdarian | 826 comments There was actually a third edition under S Evan Townsend, without the period. I combined the books, leaving S empty.

It's the same book."


Done. There may be others by that author needing combining if anyone knows the languages.

Other books seem to be okay, I've checked.


Peter (pete_C) | 388 comments I believe http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/86... and http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/93... are different editions of the same book or possibly the same book. Please investigate and fix.

Andy | 136 comments I don't have ready access to my copy of the book, but I know the two listings that are out there are wrong. Can I get some help here, please?

should be combined and S.D. Perry should be given at least main author credit. STEVE Perry is her dad, and I don't know where the other two came from. It looks like they were involved with the Dark Horse version Aliens: Labyrinth but I don't think they were involved with the original book?

Merged.


Andy | 136 comments @rivka, Thanks for your help with Labyrinth.


Ksenia (Owl_Laughing) | 13 comments Could someone please merge the following Russian editions of Hamlet with the main work:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...

All of these were originally listed under "Shekspir", "Shakespeare William", "U. Shekspir" and so on, so were not linked to the author. I've corrected the author information, but the list of Shakespeare's works is so long, that I'm just afraid to touch anything :) Thanks in advance :)


Sally (sallybell) | 24 comments Got it :)


Ksenia (Owl_Laughing) | 13 comments Thank you very much, Sally :)


Emma Raveling (emmaraveling) | 5 comments Hi everyone,

Could someone please merge these two editions:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...

with this one:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10...

Thank you so much!


Paula (Paulaan) | 4356 comments Got 41

Isabella | 57 comments Got 44. Done.


Sandra | 3436 comments Done Elizabeth :)

You'll want to know for future reference that there are 2 spaces between your first and surname to distinguish you from other Elizabeth Mays. Elizabeth^^May.

Actually, Kindle editions get listed as separate editions from other ebooks. Combined the two ebook editions with the paperback.


Ali Cross (happygrrl) | 2 comments Hello, looks like I need your help too. I have two versions, one put up by me, one put up by CreateSpace. Can you help? Thank you so much!
