SN (sorrows_neptune) | 2 comments I'm aware that only Goodreads Authors can change the default editions to books, but I'll ask anyways in hopes that super librarians can heed my request:

I'd like to propose that for all the William Shakespeare plays and sonnets, the default edition be changed to that of the Folger Shakespeare Library books; particularly their more recent editions with the cool abstract covers.

The majority of the Shakepeare plays already have these set as their default editions, and so I think it would be more consistent and look much nicer if every Shakespeare play had these set as their default edition.

Superlibrarians cannot change the default edition of a work either.

Since Shakespeare is dead, the default editions of each of his works will be the one that has been shelved by the most users.

SN (sorrows_neptune) | 2 comments Ah, I see, that makes sense. Thank you for the reply.
