Currently grouped books take the title of the first in the group. However, often that is not representative of the group (because it's a translation, or the title of that edition has an extra word in front). Might it be possible to select which of the grouped titles is given to the group as a whole?

Hi Rivka,

The order is determined by the most popular book. However a quick reviews shows we broke that when fixing this issue yesterday: [http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show_g...]. So we'll put the fix out later today - thanks for catching it!

I think it was fixed, but now it's back to taking the title from the one that's first alphabetically again.

Hi Rivka,

Looks fine to me - can you provide an example (author/title name) where you saw a problem?

This is like going to my mechanic. Of course there's no problem NOW! ;)

If I see it again, I'll make a note of where.
