Patricia Sahlberg | 1 comments When looking at Madicken, by Astrid Lindgren, it appears that the default edition is in German. Also in the series list. Can this be changed? I know I can switch edition for the one I'm reading, but I still get the German edition when I search or look at the series list. I think the default edition should be in the original language or English.

The default edition is the edition that has been shelved by the most people.
And since many people tend to shelve the default edition, it often remains the default edition.

If the author joins Goodreads they can override this and set whichever edition they like as their default, but of course that wouldn't apply to Lindgren.
