Steven (goodreadscomstevenkerry) | 138 comments I just added my newly published book to goodreads but when I try to edit the book info and open the file of my book's cover (provided by my book cover artist) it is rejected and says the error is that it is not the right kind of file or is too large. What are the specifications for me to add the cover of my book on goodreads? File format? Size?

I use Firefox just when setting up ads and/or uploading images.
