Rico Martha (ricomartha) | 4 comments Hi, I just wanna ask something here. I'm sorry if my question was already mentioned before. But I just want to make clear.
I know that a new edition of specific book should be added if it has a different cover with the original one. My question is, if the original is republish some years later but still with the same cover and content, should I add a new book with different time published or I just use the original one and add to my shelf?
I just found some books that have same cover and number of pages but with different date published has been recorded as the different edition. I'm just a little confused with that. I think that's enough. I'll wait the answer patiently.

So, if the date is different but anything else is same with the original, we can add a new edition? alright. thanks for your answer :)

Sandra said if there is nothing new except the date. so, if only the date published is different, we still don't add reprints? thanks.

We only add reprints if something has changed -- the cover, the publisher name, the number of pages.
