Janko (yanosh) | 3 comments I tried to add another edition of book Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett by clicking on "Other editions" and then "add a new edition". However when I clicked save, it was saved separately as different book. Can someone help me to add it as new edition of existing book and tell me what I did wrong?

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Yeah, unfortunately that's a limitation of the "add a new edition". I've combined the editions for you!

Janko (yanosh) | 3 comments Thank you for your (very quick) help!

But I have one question. Does that mean that I can't add new editions because they will always be saved separately?

That is how Goodreads works. A new book is a new book. When it is fully created THEN we decide whether to combine it and with what. The alternative would probably be everything getting combined more or less at random. Chaos, panic, firestorms!

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments You can add new editions! But they'll show up as new books until you (or any librarian) manually combine them with the existing editions.

Paula (Paulaan) | 7019 comments Janko - You can add new editions but must either post here to have them combined or combine them yourself as you seem to be a librarian

Caroline - you will need to post in the Librarians group to have them combined since you are not a librarian

Janko (yanosh) | 3 comments Ok. Thanks for the explanation.

You mean first day on Goodreads?

I wonder if there is a prize for the quickest librarianship application. Good luck anyway.
