Please do

1. change
- Title from "INIMA ATAT DE ALBA 2008" to "Inima atat de alba" (obvious from the cover, too)
- Edition language from English to Romanian

2. add
Published year: 2008
No Pages: 320

3. combine with
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
(being 2 Romanian editions of the same book)

This will facilitate correct search results and statistics, thanks.

Catalina | 2065 comments Olea do you own this copy? Apparently ISBN 10 and ISBN 13 were split between 2 editions a paperback with 320 pages (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) and a hardcover with 256 pages (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...). Of what I gather from Rao's website they published just a paperback with 256 pages? Can you shed any light on this?! I am trying to see if the 2 books aren't actually duplicates and need merging.


Olea | 188 comments I own a copy of this edition
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
(1998, RAO, 320 pages, ISBN10 9735761793)

I have no copy of
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I did not know it(24918697) exists until finding it on Goodreads, while searching for the edition I have; then I found it on
http://www.raobooks.com/raobooks_fisa...
(2008, RAO, 256 pages, ISBN13 9789731037264)

I really don't know where the ISBN 9731037268 comes from; if we prefix it with 978, it looks like the ISBN13 above, still with 8 instead of 4.

To me they are obviously 2 editions of the same book, published by RAO at 10 years distance.

Krazykiwi | 1767 comments prefixing with 978 and recalculating the checksum (the final digit) is exactly how you get an isbn13 out of an isbn10, so those are in fact the same ISBN.


Olea | 188 comments Thank you!

Catalina | 2065 comments The information for the hardcover edition were set by a Romanian user, that means they might own the book; maybe Rao published a limited hardcover edition at the same time with the paperback using the same ISBN. Because the information is limited, I cannot merge the 2. There are anyway combined, so I won't make any changes regarding the ISBNs and format until further information surfaces.
I did modify the number of pages for the paperback, according to Rao and Amazon, the 2008 edition has 256 pages and not 320 pages.


Olea | 188 comments Sounds fair to me (not merging and making updates we are sure about)!
