Regina Madrigal Can someone help me. I need to have this cover replaced:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

With this one: https://dwtr67e3ikfml.cloudfront.net/...

Both Barnes and Noble and my Smashwords account have the latest version: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-l...

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...

The nook version hasn't been bought yet, and hasn't been placed on readers' shelves on goodreads.

The two reviews and ratings on B&N came from this cover: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-l...

Can you please set the paperback version as the primary edition then? They say I can do it myself but when I try there is no default button.

If you can't do it yourself, you can ask Goodreads Support to have them set the default.

I thought this was the librarian's group.

You said Librarians can set the default edition (which is why I'm here) but then you tell me to ask Goodreads support for help.. Um ok?

Emy (emypt) | 5036 comments I think that was a typo :) We, as Librarians can't set default editions.

Alright you guys. You know this whole matter could be simplified if authors were allowed to fix their issues themselves.

Sorry, indeed a typo. We can't.

Librarians are volunteers. Goodreads Support are employees.
