message 2: by Amara (new)

Amara (AFTanith) Do you have a link to a copy of the cover on a non-bookseller site? Or a scan, maybe?

message 6: by Jerantino (new)

Jerantino | 8 comments Do you have to be a Librarian to add book covers?
I have scans of the missing covers on my shelves but can't seem to find a button to upload them.


message 7: by Vicky (new)

Vicky (vnorthw) | 2420 comments Yes you have to be a librarian to add them. You can, however, upload them to your profile and we can download them and get them assigned to the right book from there.

To do that, go to your profile and click on your profile picture to bring up the full size image. From there you should see an "add more photos" link in the top right.

Please post the ISBNs with the covers so we know where they belong. :)

Jerantino | 8 comments Gotcha, thanks so much!


message 9: by Jerantino (new)

Jerantino | 8 comments I've got a batch of missing covers uploaded to my photos if someone has the time to assign them?
Thanks so much!

vicki_girl | 2764 comments I couldn't find the book that goes with this cover.

http://www.goodreads.com/photo/user/5...

Do you have a direct link? Or do we need to create a new record for it?

I had to create an alternate cover edition for ISBN 0-7221-1414-1, Books of Blood Vol 3 and for ISBN 1-56389-227-8, Sandman.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...

Can you please provide the Publisher, publication date, pages, format (hardcover, paperback) etc. for those two books?

Also, ISBN 0-7221-1375-7, Books of Blood Vol 4 could use some additional info: Publisher, publication date, pages, and format.

Thank you for scanning all those!

Okay, I was searching on Roof World as two words, not Roofworld as one word. There was no existing edition that matched yours so I created a new one:

vicki_girl | 2764 comments Sorry, I made a mistake in msg 10. ISBN 0-7221-1375-7 is Books of Blood, Vol. 6. I assume that is also a Sphere paperback, and have added that. Could you provide the publication date and pages numbers for that one? Sorry again for the confusion!

The other books have all been updated. :)

Sorry I must be blind I still don't see or have any cover for this book. Maybe I gave you the wrong ISBN but if you look under the author you will see most single books are missing covers.

It also seems that we may have more than one location for this author please combine if possible that could also be one of the problem.

Thank you for your attention and time in clarifying this

Correct cover is here:

Since we're more like a library than a bookstore, it's not Goodreads' policy to change the cover of a published book. We do create alternate-cover entries though. That's what I'm in the process of doing for you.


message 20: by Tntexas (new)

Tntexas | 404 comments Here's the alternate-cover entry for the Kindle edition of the book.

I was going to create an alternate-cover entry for the regular ebook as well; but search as I might, I could not find evidence that the regular ebook has been reissued with that cover. Smashwords says the book is no longer published with them. A search on B&N does not bring it up nor does a Google search with the book's name and ISBN number. Because of that, I left it at just the entry for the Kindle version.

Okay-- so there are a new batch of covers in my photo file. I promise this is the last bunch for a while...

message 24: by Amara (last edited Jun 16, 2012 01:50PM) (new)

Amara (AFTanith) I've finished uploading the covers for the Sandman ones (all of which had to be added as alternate cover editions), Moonshadow, and The Witching Hour (another alternate cover edition).

But I have to leave for a half-an-hour or so, so if someone wants to finish up those covers in the meantime, feel free. if nobody gets to it, I'll continue asap.

All finished! :)

Ah, so it will be available with the new cover soon then. Given that, I went ahead and added an alternate-cover entry for it. You can find it here. If there are any details that need to be changed or added for either version, just let us know.

Inge Borg (goodreadscomInge_H_Borg) | 23 comments One of our own Goodreads authors, Diana Wilder, has designed a new cover for my
Khamsin The Devil Wind of the Nile

And here is the link for it from her blog:

Would one of you kind souls please add this as an alternate cover for me? (It does replace the old one)As always, you are most appreciated.

Looks like someone's taken care of it.

Toni, try searching by ISBN. This is the book with that ISBN.

In any case, if you want a cover to be added to a book, you need to supply either a cover you have scanned yourself, or an online source that is NOT a bookseller. (No Amazon, B&N, etc.)

Linda (LindaJButler) | 1 comments Hello, can someone please change the cover image for

Denise Wy (denisewy) | 5 comments Hello, can anyone change the cover image of this book http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/84... to the one in this page?

http://www.feedbooks.com/userbook/272...

I have uploaded an updated version of my book, but since I don't have librarian priviledges, I couldn't update the book cover here in goodreads. :( thank so much in advance!

I have the book myself, and the image is correct.
Thanks!

Fera フェルナンダ (FeraFernanda) | 8 comments @Gustavo: Done! :D

@Denise: sorry, Denise, the image didn't show up in the link you posted D:
do you have any other link to your book's picture?


message 36: by Gustavo (new)

Gustavo Vazquez | 12 comments Thanks!


message 37: by Amara (new)

Amara (AFTanith) Re #35:

As Fera said, you link doesn't have a book cover at it that we can see (I assume it only shows when logged in as author). But that issue aside, was the book ever released with the cover currently showing on GR? Because if so, we'll need to create an alternate cover edition instead of changing it.


message 38: by Denise (new)

Denise Wy (denisewy) | 5 comments hello, for #35, here is the image http://www.feedbooks.com/userbook/272... the reason it didn't show the first time was I forgot to click the publish button. I apologize for the inconvenience :)

But is it possible to make it as the main book cover of the book? (The original is pretty crappy)


message 42: by Amara (last edited Jun 17, 2012 07:54PM) (new)

Amara (AFTanith) Once more people have shelved the new edition/cover than the old, the new cover will automatically become the main/default edition. Unfortunately, there is no way to manually change which is the default.

Denise Wy (denisewy) | 5 comments Oh, I see. Thanks :)

Thank you very much I always add books searching for the author or the book but seems this author has many entries.

Problem solved thanks a million


message 45: by Jerantino (new)

Jerantino | 8 comments Uploaded a few more missing covers to my photos, whenever anyone has time to add them.
Please note info on Moonshadow-- still not finding updated cover for Game of You, so I left it.
Thanks!

lafon حمزة نوفل (lafon) | 3545 comments Added a few of 47 but now my internet connection is acting up, and I will be unable to finish the rest.


message 47: by Amara (last edited Jun 20, 2012 08:00PM) (new)

Amara (AFTanith) Re 47: Got all the covers lafon حمزة didn't (I must have missed Game of You last time, so sorry about that!).

On the subject of Moonshadow (ISBN 0-936211-16-4), it might be the migraine I've had all day making me overlook something obvious, but what information needs to be added to it?


message 48: by Leah (new)

Leah (flying_monkeys) | 21 comments Rivals of Weird Tales: 30 Great Fantasy and Horror Stories from the Weird Fiction Pulps needs a cover. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10...

Web page with the book cover image: http://howardworks.com/rivalsofweirdt... (This is the website for one of the authors featured in the anthology, so I believe that fits new source rules.)
