Done. Your book is here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

However that does not seem to be a site we can use for covers (see acceptable sources). If you have this book and can upload a scan to your profile, a librarian can add it to the record.

Another item that seems to be missing is the translator, if you happen to know who that is.

Schmetterling | 4 comments Hi.

I have added a German paperback edition to this book:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

But I can't combine it with the other editions. Can someone help me with that?

Thanks in advance.

The edition I added is this one:

Best,
Mette

Alex | 2739 comments #3 Done. I also added some information from amazon (bigger cover, translator, ISBN10), and edited the title to match GR standards.

For future reference, you can avoid this issue by navigating to the page of the book you want to add and using the "Add a new edition" link found below the thumbnails of the book's other editions. After creating your edition, it will be automatically combined with the rest.

I've uploaded the cover to my profile, here: https://www.goodreads.com/photo/user/...

The translator's name is Rui Azeredo

Could you please change the description to this one that is more complete?: Nomeado o livro do ano 2015 no Irish Book Awards, chega-nos pelas mãos da melhor escritora para jovens adultos da atualidade um romance apaixonante que prende o leitor desde o primeiro capítulo.

Emma O’Donovan tem 18 anos e é bonita, feliz e confiante. Gosta de usar roupas curtas e provocantes, está sempre impecável e adora ser cobiçada. Todas as raparigas gostam de estar perto dela, e todos os rapazes gostariam de namorar com ela. Até que, numa noite de verão, numa festa, a Emma quer tanto ser o centro das atenções, que só pode ser tudo menos ela própria. E nessa festa há bebidas, e drogas, e rapazes… E depois dessa noite a sua vida nunca mais voltará a ser a mesma. Estaria Emma «a pedi-las»? Será que a culpa também foi dela? É isso que todos querem saber. «A culpa é minha» é uma história poderosa sobre os efeitos devastadores do abuso sexual e da humilhação.
Contada na voz da protagonista, somos arrastados para o centro da ação e obrigados a vivê-la intensamente com a jovem Emma.

That does not appear to be your scan, but the image from the bookseller. We still cannot use it, even if you have downloaded and then uploaded it to your profile.

Then why can't you take the cover from the bookseller link I gave you? That's their page

See the link to acceptable sources Alex gave in msg #2: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...

Booksellers are not allowed as a source for book covers and other book data (except Amazon, AbeBooks and Book Depository, because Goodreads is owned by Amazon).

But the link I gave you is the Publisher Website! They only have the option to buy their books online, but it's their page! And the Publisher Website is allowed as a source!


message 12: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13532 comments You said it was a bookseller, and since you named the publisher as IN, which is different from Zero a Oito, you can understand the confusion, especially to librarians who do not speak Portuguese.

I tried to grab the cover from the publisher's site, but it won't let me. And your photos are set to private, so I can't use your link either.

Maybe another librarian can download the image from the publisher's site.

Alex | 2739 comments re #1/6/11/12: I have the link to the image, however I am not convinced that Zero a Oito is the same publisher as IN EDIÇÕES.

Looking through the FAQ where the publisher offers information for the sale of the rights to their books, one sees that only Zero a Oito books are on offer.

In conclusion, I think IN EDIÇÕES is a partner company, not a subsidiary to Zero a Oito, so I'm still not sure if the site is an acceptable source.

Ana, as a Portuguese speaker, can you point us to any place where we can clearly see the relationship between the two publishers?

English is not my mother tongue, so sometimes I don't interpret some words right. I'll explain: Zero a Oito is the "big" publisher, but they started other publishers that focus on particular genres, one of which is IN, so IN is apart of Zero a Oito. And in the website header, you can see the Zero a Oito logo right beside the IN logo.

To download the cover, you would have to inspect the page and go through the HTML code to find the link of the picture. I already did that, but since you can't see it on my profile, you can download it here: https://images.gr-assets.com/photos/1...

If you go to this page (http://www.zeroaoito.pt/sobre.html?la...) you'll see that Zero a Oito "owns" IN (I know the Portuguese word for this relationship, but not the English one) because it clearly says: As nossas Editoras (Our publishers) and IN is there.


message 16: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13532 comments So IN is an imprint of Zero a Oito. That makes Zero a Oito an acceptable source. Thanks for the explanation, Ana :)

Imprint! That's the word! Yeah, no worries! :)


message 18: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2739 comments Sorry about the confusion. The cover has now been added from the publisher's site. :)
