Asteropê (21tauri) | 144 comments I wasn't sure if I could just delete and replace it, so posting this here -

ISBN:
0375850856
Title: Your Life, But Cooler

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0375...
Publisher: http://www.randomhousekids.com/books/...

Problem: The cover is actually for another book (Your Life, but Better). It should be "Your Life, But Cooler" (pink cover, not blue). Like all the other editions:

At first I thought someone made a mistake with the title and combined them, but the ISBN and other info are for the title listed, it's just the cover that's wrong.

Looks like it was amazon_kcw that made the mistake.

Done - I only changed the cover :)

Asteropê (21tauri) | 144 comments Thanks, that's all that needed changing.

I would have done it myself, but wasn't sure the protocol for deleting/replacing incorrect covers. Didn't want to get in trouble!

I checked the internet, and according to the ISBN - the pink one is the right cover for sure.

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments The main thing to check if the cover does not match the title is to ensure the book was not previously published under a different title. There are occasions when authors/ librarians change title to reflect the new title but don't/ cannot change the cover.

If that is not the case then generally fine to change the cover if not the appropriate cover for author title.

Asteropê (21tauri) | 144 comments Thanks for the info. I made sure to check various places first.

This wasn't published under a different title. It was a mistake on the part of Amazon.

The book was for #2 of the series and the cover was for #1.

Good to know if the future, if all things are checked, they can be replaced without issue. Though when it doubt, I'll post here.

:-)
