Alexander (streetlightreader) | 41 comments Hi,

Can we add the following cover:

http://pictures.abebooks.com/isbn/978... (Abebooks picture)

to the following title:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...

It's not the best picture, but I can't really find a better one, unfortunately.

Cheers.

lethe | 14578 comments The AbeBooks image has a different ISBN than the edition on Goodreads.

Also, please always link to the full page instead of just the image. Makes it easier to check.

ETA Amazon says that ISBN 042276700X belongs to the hardcover (I see the format was changed by a bot, reverted that change). The AbeBooks pic looks like a paperback.

Alexander (streetlightreader) | 41 comments If it helps, it's definitely the hardcover because I'm reading a copy right now!: Image and video hosting by TinyPic

lethe | 14578 comments That is a different (I)SBN than the edition you linked to on GR. It belongs to this edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...

Could you make a scan or take a photo of your edition? The image on AbeBooks definitely belongs to a paperback edition, and we want to have the exact cover for the ISBN.

Alexander (streetlightreader) | 41 comments Here's my effort! Hope it's OK, it was hard to minimize the gloss because of the laminated cover:

Also, if I want to get the page number of the edition added (576), can I ask here or should I make that a separate inquiry?

lethe | 14578 comments It's fine! Added cover and some info.

Worldcat has 540 pages for this ISBN, which is quite a difference. Can you check what is on those last 36 pages?


message 7: by Alexander (new)

Alexander (streetlightreader) | 41 comments Yay, thanks! As for the page numbers, its 540 not including the contents and introduction, which are numbered in Roman numerals. I also counted a couple of blank leafs at the end of the book, but I don't know if that's convention or not.

lethe | 14578 comments On GR, the introductory pages in Roman numerals are not counted. Blank pages at the end are also not counted, so added 540 pages.
