Anita Nasr (aenasr) | 4 comments I tried creating a new edition myself but it said the ASIN was already taken.

I've updated my cover and description on Amazon and need them to reflect on Goodreads. Help please.

Arenda | 22034 comments Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have.
Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition.
See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...
and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....

Alternate-cover edition added here:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

As the author, you have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile.
How to set the default edition.

Anita Nasr (aenasr) | 4 comments Dear Librarians

Since last week when Arenda kindly helped add an edition of my book, a new edition has appeared identical to that one. How does this happen and should I do anything about it?

Arenda's edition:
