Arenda | 20786 comments No merge. Both are valid editions, with a different isbn.

It the same book though. That means there are 2 versions on Goodreads with people reading and rating one or the other. If it is used in a group bookshelf, for example, both have to be included.

Abcdarian | 19829 comments All the editions of that book are combined (https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...) and all ratings & reviews are attached to every edition, so you don't need to worry about more than one.

When I created a bookshelf it showed that I had not read the book. When I looked at the book itself it showed that the same copy was there twice and that I had read one but not the other. To get around that I marked each as read with one having a review the other not. The link you have supplied, when I look at it shows one has review from me, the other does not. In my opinion there seems to be two versions of the same books one with a review from me and one without. One of them I have 18 "likes" and the other none even though I have marked it read and have rated. There seems to be a bug in the marking of the book using the same cover twice. I think that is because it has been included twice, once with the wrong ISBN number. Just guessing though. Every one that I have looked up that has read the book that I have liked has it twice on their read list.

Abcdarian | 19829 comments That might be a bug that you could ask about either in the Goodreads Feedback group (https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/1) or through Support (@ goodreads.com). It's not something librarians can help with I'm afraid.

There's no bug. 4triplezed has shelved two editions of the work. One with a review, and one without.
