message 1: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Compter (scompter) | 1 comments Goodreads does not recognize the following two books as two editions of the same, so I can't combine the two. BUT... I know the publishers personally and there is only one book! Can we combine them?

If there's a question of which data to maintain, we should maintain the first edition's data.

Thank you!

Paula (Paulaan) | 4941 comments Combined - we do not list publishers as authors so they are removed. If they contributed to the book then they would be added as contributors.

Lee | 1 comments hi .. can you combine this 2 ...
it is of the same edition but one without book photo, wrong listed author, .. whereas mine with a book photo, correct pages number, collectif contributor but unable to key in the isbn due to the former sharing the same.

lafon حمزة نوفل (lafon) | 3547 comments Combined. Is that an alternate cover edition, or does it have an ISBN or ASIN of it's own?

Its a reprint with a new cover. Same ISBN as the original.

Bridget | 2 comments Hello,

I'm Bridget Hoida, author of the novel So L.A. My novel is listed on GoodReads, but it doesn't seem to have an ISBN associated with it. Additionally there seems to be a "ghost" listing (no cover, no reviews, no photos) with the ISBN that should be attached to my book. Can you please merge these two listings and/or attach the following ISBN to my novel, So L.A. ?

ISBN-10: 0985129433
ISBN-13: 978-0985129439

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

Link to "ghost copy": http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...

So L.A. by Bridget Hoida
Lettered Press
384 pages
ISBN-10: 0985129433
ISBN-13: 978-0985129439

Thank you VERY much.

Truly,
Bridget
