Vsevolod | 2 comments Book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Cover: https://goo.gl/photos/DfQrAgAmb26kHCmk6

Scanned it myself w/ scannable. It's too small on publisher's website http://tatlin.ru/store/345

Also, while we're at it, could you please make it 64 pages lon? The book paging doesn't start from zero (300+ instead as it's a republished part of a larger tome) so I got mixed up, it's really short.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments Added cover and corrected page count. I had to use the cover from the publisher website as I could not copy the photo from Google Photos.

Reverted page count change. We go with the actual page numbers used, even when they don't start from 0.

lethe | 13673 comments What is the number of the first page? I think we could add P. xxx-432 to the description and add 'Offprint' to the edition field.

It's not an offprint. It has numbering based on being part of a sequence. But yes, the pages can be added to the description. They are listed on WorldCat: http://www.worldcat.org/title/zhiloi-...

P.S. Meraux | 3 comments Hi. There's an old cover for Spotlight: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

And a new one:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Is there any way that the new (blue) cover can be the main one that shows up on Goodreads? I want to add a widget to my blog and the old cover for Spotlight keeps coming up as the primary cover. The covers for my other books have all updated.

I misunderstood the "republished part of a larger tome". Have added the page numbering to the description.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments Rivka and Lethe - thank you so much! This is excellent information to know; always a good day when I learn something new. (I'm slowly catching up after a 24-hour internet outage.)

Oh dear, hope you didn't get any withdrawal symptoms. OTOH, great excuse to read a good book! :)

That did the trick. Thanks so much for your guidance.
