Ella Dominguez (elladominguez) | 139 comments How do I add a quote to my book title. Someone quoted a line in my book, but it doesn't show up under my book title. Another person quoted my book and it did show up, so I'm wondering how that's done. If someone can either explain how I can do it or do it for me, that would be great. It's the 'hard on in 3D' quote that I need linked to my title above please. Thanks in advance!~

Cagne (whitekanye) | 22 comments Click on "more quotes" on the book page, then on the right there's "add a quote", check the spelling on your name.

That does not work. It does not directly link the quote to my book title, it only links the quote to my name. ??


Ella Dominguez (elladominguez) | 139 comments Okay. Nevermind. I got it figured out. Thanks for your help. I can be a little slow on the draw sometimes. :)


Ella Dominguez (elladominguez) | 139 comments Can someone please delete the duplicate now? Please delete the one that only has 1 like. Thanks and sorry for being such a pain.

Ella Dominguez (elladominguez) | 139 comments I suspected as much.


Ella Dominguez (elladominguez) | 139 comments Okay. I don't know how I keep doing this wrong. When I add a quote to my book, it always comes up ONLY under my name and NOT associated with my book. Can someone please link the quote about the sausage to my book The Art of Submission, please.

You could also add that it is helpful if someone adding a quotation actually bothers to check if a quotation already exists on Goodreads and that it does belong to the person they are planning to attribute it to.

Authors are also quite good at attributing to themselves the sayings of more famous people.
