Meredith (etoilemp) | 6 comments I'm trying to merge books. I think it's merge, it might be combine. This is one entry:

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

This is the other:

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

The first one is the Kindle edition, and is where I added all the authors, since that was the one with the cover already uploaded.

The second is the paperback and ebook (combined editions).

They're all the same. The Kindle edition lists ASIN, and the combined edition lists ISBN and ISBN-13. They should all the be the same book, same authors, same cover.

Help, should I be combining or merging? How do I do this? If someone could do it for me that would be lovely, thanks!

To combine, the primary author has to be the same for all editions. Moved the editor to primary position.

For difference between combine and merge, see https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...

Meredith (etoilemp) | 6 comments Thank you, Arenda! That's what I was missing.

Is there some way to copy over the authors and such, besides manually? I've added the cover art since that was only two things, but it'd be a bit laborious to copy the rest of it from the Kindle edition to the other ones!

Thanks!

Only manually.
