message 1: by Jon (new) - rated it 3 stars

Jon (jonmoss) | 203 comments I did a search based on the ISBN (9781470361471) this morning and came up blank. I then searched for the book and went to all editions. I filtered for audiobooks and found one, but it wasn't exactly right. So I clicked on the link to add a new edition.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18...

However, when I got done, it doesn't seem to be associated with the book I was trying to make a new edition for.

Also, I can't find the cover art (it's different from the hardcover).

Thanks in advance for your help.

Jon

Someone else has combined it with the others (it is the one at the bottom):

It is likely that the audiobook you added is the same as the one that is already on Goodreads but with an ISBN rather than the ASIN that Amazon add to their items. Is the cover like the red & white one on that page?

Jon (jonmoss) | 203 comments No, it's like this one:

The other thing that was different from the Audiobook edition is it said 22 pages (which I equated to 22 CDs?) but the audiobook I have in my possession is 18 CDs.

Thanks,

Pages are equivalent to hours, not CDs.

Ah, I see.

Banjomike | 5530 comments Rivka, remind me, are we allowed to use covers from Audible which are different from the cover that Amazon have for the same product?

I cringe to bring this up, but I notice that Audible website works have different ASINs than the ones on Amazon, so *technically* you could do two editions. (Look in the URL for the Audible ASIN, it's not listed in the item description.) Although I've never noticed Audible and Amazon having different covers for the same work before, not unless one is abridged and other is unabridged.

Yes, but the cover in question seems to only be on the Audible site (and several can't-use bookseller sites including the one linked by Jon above). The cover on Amazon is different so it needs to come from Audible or else it could take a lot of tracking down .

EDIT: it has turned up on Amazon.
Done:

Thank you very much! Sorry for all the extra work.

Yes, because Audible is also owned by Amazon.
