Ann (morieel) | 200 comments I added an edition that maybe a duplicate of an existing edition. On my first attempt I included this ISBN 9781456114350 - the 2nd time I deleted the ISBN and it added. For some reason the book cover that I tried to include didn't update. I tried to add it again and I created a duplicate.

this is the entry that doesn't have the book cover and should either be deleted or added to 32731984

this is the correct entry; it has the correct book cover

Done: Duplicate editions merged.

The reason the system wouldn't allow you to add an edition with ISBN 9781456114350 is that there was already a record with that ISBN: Her Mother's Hope

I cleaned up the audio listings for this title; both Recorded Books Inc and WorldCat had the details needed to complete the listings, including cover images. I also added the AudibleAudio edition from Amazon: Her Mother's Hope

Dobby (dobby0390) | 4014 comments #3 - This is a legitimate, if incomplete, listing for a Danish edition of the book. I corrected the spelling of the title, added the cover from the publisher website, and combined this edition with the others of the same title. I found the listing on WorldCat, but was unable to determine whether it is a hardcover or paperback format. I also did not find a description in Danish.

Kendra (kendrarose) | 5 comments Hi, I've noticed that there are multiple editions of Love in Little Snow by Katrina Hart. Could you please keep these two: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... and https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... and remove the others? I'm a friend of the author and she's recently switched publishers. Thanks for your help.
