Laina Turner | 8 comments Hello. This is the first time I've done this so I apologize if I do it wrong. I need several book covers changed as they've been updated recently. Can someone help me with this? I've uploaded the picture I need to the book. Here are the links to the books needing updated. Thanks so much and let me know if you need anything else!

Roberta  | 83 comments Sorry, I don't see old and new covers on #2. Has a librarian already started working on this??

I was going to explain that Goodreads policy does not allow librarians to "change" the cover of a book that has already been sold with that cover. They allow us to manually add an edition to the database that would be an 'alternate cover edition.' The author may then select the new cover as the default. Then in the Description field, add a note stating that it is an alternate cover edition (this helps prevent the book from accidentally being deleted by a librarian who thinks it is an invalid entry).

Thanks for your reply. I uploaded pictures into the more photos section of the books. Each book should have an extra photo, that photo is the new cover. I don't mind there being an alternate cover edition just wanted to have my updated material on here. No one has started working on this yet. Can you see the additional photos I added? Thanks!
