Edwina Callan | 3525 comments What should we do when we enter a book that is available as a "free read" but the book is only listed as paperback. Example below.

If you mean that the author also has the book available to be downloaded for free, that is an ebook. Its publication date would be whenever it was first made available by the author.

The words "free read" do not belong anywhere in the book's description or format, just as we wouldn't usually include $2.99 or $24.95 in the description.

Edwina Callan | 3525 comments But there is no ebook listed, only a paperback copy.
Can you add the ebook ?

Edwina Callan | 3525 comments I'm sorry. I guess I didn't make myself clear.
What I wanted to know was if there is an ebook but the only book listed says paperback should we just go ahead and mark that we read the paperback because the ebook is a free read and not listed as an option.

Ren | 688 comments The fact that it's free doesn't matter, just list it as a regular ebook.

I've added it here with the info from Amazon:

Edwina, are you asking how to add a new edition of a book in general?
