Arenda | 19850 comments That edition was already on Goodreads:

For books that are published with a new cover and the same isbn or ASIN, an alternate cover edition will be created.

I have added a link to the alternate cover edition on the page of the edition with the ASIN.

Nicole Normand | 577 comments I'm really sorry but I still don't see the edition for my book, which is Sept.29-2013 with 206 pages.

Arenda | 19850 comments For alternate cover editions, the date for the new cover is used as publication date:

message 5: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Normand | 577 comments Please check again. My edition is not there. I really don't care about covers; I'm looking at the edition only (device, date, page count). I'm wondering though if this is not an infringement of copyright because you're changing the cover that the author chose/paid for. The editions that appear in the link you gave me are the following: Kindle Sept30/2013, 204 pages; Kindle Mar13/2015, 206 pages; eBook Sept30/2013 no page count; Paperback Apr14/2016, 206 pages. My edition, bought on Amazon, is Kindle, Sept29/2013, 206 pages.

David Raz (davidraz) | 4070 comments Nicole, as we keep explaining on this and other threads, policy is not to add a new edition for the same ASIN if the cover is the same. The publication date for Kindle alternative cover editions should reflect the day the cover was changed, but it is often inaccurate as this data is usually unavailable.
The page count might be slightly wrong but the current Amazon edition states 204 pages and I could not find an edition with this ASIN, maybe you can link it. If you have an earlier cover edition we can change that to 206 if you say which one (or even better, link it).

David Raz (davidraz) | 4070 comments (As for copyright infringement, I suggest you use since librarians have nothing to do with this. As someone who only took 2 courses in Intellectual Property Law I don't consider myself an expert.)

Arenda | 19850 comments Corrected the publication date for this edition: to Sept 29th 2013, which is the same as Amazon has for this ASIN: B00FJ6DW00
Page count on Amazon (which is where the page count for a Kindle edition should be taken from) is set as 204, which is the same as on Goodreads.
