Eline (justamistake) | 147 comments Done all 3.


message 3: by Ine (last edited Feb 02, 2014 02:15PM) (new)

Ine | 263 comments I've done #1, added page numbers and cover image.

Refers to a different #1, current #1 post can't be done because the ISBN doesn't match.


message 4: by Eline (new)

Eline (justamistake) | 147 comments Done 4.


message 5: by Ine (new)

Ine | 263 comments The last book has a completely different ISBN. I don't think adding the cover for a different ISBN is correct.

You;re right. Hadn;t noticed it. I've deleted the cover.

message 12: by Ine (new)

Ine | 263 comments Edwina, are you deleting some of your messages? That leaves us librarians no way to determine which ones have been taken care of by another librarian, because the message numbers are off.

Yeah... I first thought I had mixed up the numbers... I edited my post because of that... but now those are also gone. To avoid more confusement, I've deleted the posts concerning 'the missing books'


message 15: by Nina (new)

Nina | 426 comments Edwina, no need to delete your posts. It messes up the numbering of the messages, which makes it rather confusing.
Thanks!


message 16: by Edwina (new)

Edwina Callan | 3384 comments Thank you so much for fixing all of those books so quickly. I have deleted all but these 2 that still need fixed.


message 19: by Edwina (new)

Edwina Callan | 3384 comments I'm so sorry. I just saw all of the above messages.
This is my first time on here trying this and I had no clue how it worked.
I thought that by deleting I was helping.


message 20: by Ine (new)

Ine | 263 comments No worries, it all worked out in the end. :)


message 21: by Nina (new)

Nina | 426 comments #1 Introducing Hinduism
The cover-link you gave, is another edition. So far I haven't found any proof of a correct cover for ISBN 0377852813 / ISBN13: 9780377852815.

#13 Starlight
That edition already has its (correct) cover. That's the paperback (ISBN 0373536283 / ISBN13: 9780373536283). The link you gave, is a Mass Paperback (ASIN: B000FEG0LE)


message 22: by Ine (last edited Feb 02, 2014 03:22PM) (new)

Ine | 263 comments I've created new records for those two editions, links in #17 and #18.


message 23: by Ine (new)

Ine | 263 comments Well, those numbers for as long as posts don't get deleted. :P


message 24: by Edwina (new)

Edwina Callan | 3384 comments Can you fix a cover if the picture isn't on Amazon ?
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

I have the picture here

message 25: by Nina (new)

Nina | 426 comments I was just thinking the same ;)
That's why I mentioned the titles... At some point I might not understand my own posts anymore hahha

The other options are an image from the publisher's or author's website, or you taking a photograph or scan of the book that you own.

That edition is in fact an English edition. I've added the cover from Amazon for that ISBN.


message 32: by Edwina (new)

Edwina Callan | 3384 comments Can you fix 24 ?

Bookcrossing is not a site we can use for bookcovers or book data.


message 34: by Christa (new)

Christa Simpson (christasimpson) | 12 comments Can you please delete my current book cover and exchange it with this one? http://christasimpson.files.wordpress...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

The book has not yet been published. Thank you.


message 35: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments christa, can you confirm that your book hasn't been distributed pre-pub with the old cover, even as an advanced reader copy?


message 36: by Christa (new)

Christa Simpson (christasimpson) | 12 comments No copies have been distributed to date.


message 37: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments re 36, done

Why can't we use Bookcrossing for book cover photos ?
It isn't a book selling site and Goodreads always asks me if it is a Bookcrossing book when I tick the "own a copy" box so Goodreads must know it's a legit site.

rivka | 42013 comments Mod
Bookswap sites ARE effectively selling books, although not for cash.

It's not a question of whether a site is "legit", but what sites we can legally take covers from.


message 40: by Christa (new)

Christa Simpson (christasimpson) | 12 comments Thank you, Z-squared. <3
