message 1: by R. (new)

R. Hello. I added a new edition of Upton Sinclair's "Presidential Mission (Lanny Budd, #8)" so that I could change the edition I added to my Read List to the actual edition that I read. I can see that edition by searching on it, but I can't edit my current edition and change to the new one. It's not listed with other existing editions.

Any help appreciated. Thanks!


message 2: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments Combined - you should be able to add the other edition now


message 3: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey | 120 comments Hello. I created a new Kindle edition of "Faythe Reclaimed (Hanaford Park, #3)" by Lisa Sanchez, but it does not show up as an alternate edition, rather a seperate book. As a result, when searching for the book, it shows up twice and statistics such as reviews and ratings have not combined.

Could you possibly combine those two books as one, but as seperate editions?

Thank you so much for your time.


message 4: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey | 120 comments Hi, again!

I am interested in adding a book to my "To Read" list, so I created a new Kindle edition of "Recaptured Dreams" by Justine Dell. It shows up in the search results as a separate book rather than an alternate edition, and as a result, the statistics such as reviews and ratings have not combined.

Could you please combine these two books as one, though separate editions?

Thank you so much for your time.


Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Looks like someone already did.

lafon حمزة نوفل (lafon) | 3557 comments Got it. However could you please provide links to one or both editions next time? It greatly contributes to my laziness, which I would appreciate. xD


message 7: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey | 120 comments Hello. I've been trying to clean up my Goodreads shelves today so that all my books match up to the editions I read or will read, and this *should* be the last time I contact you for a while. I have a few books I would very much appreciate your assistance with, if possible.

First, I read the Kindle version of "The Princess' Dragon Lord" by Mandy Rosco. I see that it does not have a cover, but it is the same picture as the other editions. Would it be possible to have that picture added? The following is a link to the coverless Kindle version:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14...

Last, the following is in regards to editions of books being considered a separate book rather than just an alternate edition, so the statistics, such as the reviews and ratings, are not combined. The following books should be combined if possible:

“The Watcher” by Lisa Voisin
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

“The Way Life Was Forever” by Carey Corp
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

“Broken Wings” by Alexandrea Weis
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

“Fade to Black” by Morgan Kearns
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

“The Cypher Wheel” by Alison Pensy
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

“Certain Sure” by Reina M. Williams
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

“Prom Nights from Hell” by Stephenie Meyer, Kim Harrison, Meg Cabot, Lauren Myracle, and Michele Jaffe
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

Thank you so much for your time and help today; I appreciate it very much.

Best Wishes,
Lindsey

I think I got all of those :)


message 9: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey | 120 comments Hello. I am trying to add a book to my To Read list and when searching for the title, I saw that there is more than one entry for a single book in the search results.

The book I would like to add is called Awakened, and it was written by Brenda K. Davies. I would really appreciate if the two editions could be combined so as to indicate alternate editions rather than separate books.

The following are the links to the two alternate editions:

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

Also, the Kindle edition of the book (the second of the above links) does not have a picture added as a cover. Would it be possible to have that added? Both editions should have the same cover picture.

Thank you so much for your time.

Best Wishes,
Lindsey

My book has a new cover -- how can I update it? I tried to and was told only GR librarians can.

You would create an alternate cover edition: http://www.goodreads.com/librarian_ma...

Or we can do it for you. We need the link to your cover to be from a non-bookseller site, such as a publisher or author website.

Or...you can upload it to your photos on your goodreads profile, and we can grab it from there.


message 19: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey | 120 comments Hello.

I just created new editions of a couple of books, and I was wondering if you could add them as alternate editions to the existing books.

I created a Kindle version of Finding Angel, by Kat Heckenbach, which is here:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

It should be combined with the following:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...

Also, I created a Kindle version of Clause: Legend of the Fat Man, by Tony Bertauski, which is here:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

It should be combined with the following:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...

Thank you so much for your time.

Best Wishes,
Lindsey V.

Thank you so much for replying. In answer to your question, no, I do not have a cover as one has not yet been chosen for publication. I'll add one as soon as one becomes available.

Thanks again!
