Amit Pagedar | 7 comments Hi Moderators,

I recently added new book to Goodreads and got an Author Profile also.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I am trying to upload pdf format for my book. Is there a way to do this? Can any librarian help add a pdf format for my book? Please note it's a FREE ebook which is in PDF format.

Alternative method I discovered is to upload the whole pdf as a Preview, but I really want to avoid doing this.

Are there any alternatives?

Thanks for your help!

Riff (theriff) | 2 comments Goodreads doesn't host copies of books; it catalogues books available from book stores. If you publish your book with a valid ISBN or Amazon ASIN, Goodreads will link to that.

Actually, Goodreads Authors can upload either a preview or a full ebook to be attached to their book record.

However, this is not something librarians can assist with. Amit, I believe the process is indeed the same as uploading a preview (with a difference of a single checkbox part-way through the process), but you may wish to use the Contact Us link on the Help page for more details.
