Andy Carrington (carrington_andy) Hello people.

I understand there is an option to add an official URL to each of our books. One of the Librarians kindly did it for one of my books already, but I've been trying to do the same with all my other books and can't, for the life of me, find the box to edit it myself.

Do I have permission to do this? If not, would someone mind doing it for me?

This is a link to my page:

The book 'THE DAILY FAIL' has the URL inputted already.

The rest of the books need the following relaxant links adding to each:

Thanks in advance.

URLs must have information and resources that are not on GR. URLs that just have the book cover and buy links are not acceptable in the official URL field

It's not a "buy link", as such. That is the official URL. And it was one of the librarians that put the first one in for me.

That said, I see the first 3 URLs have a preview link on their page. That qualifies them to be added in my opinion. All three books have a giveaway going on though, and we have to be cautious with editing during that time (don't know if that also counts for adding a URL).

The middle 3 books have a download link but no preview or other extra information.

I see the last 3 books are not available anymore, so there is no point in adding a URL.
