Lyndon Hardy | 9 comments Hi Librarians

I have three books in Goodreads with the following ISBNs

Master of the Five Magics, 2nd edition -print 978-0-9971501-6-2 and kindle 978-0-9971501-0-0

Secret of the Sixth Magic, 2nd edition print 978-0-9971501-7-9 and kindle 978-0-9971501-1-7

Riddle of the Third Realms, 2nd edition print 978-0-9971501-8-6 and kindle 978-0-9971501-2-4

When I click on the 'Stores' choice for any of them, I see Barnes and Nobel and Kobo among the choices. Clicking on one of those choices takes me to the correct webpage
So far, so good.

However, I do not see a choice of Apple/iTunes for any of the three books.

The appropriate URLS are
https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/mast...

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/secr...

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/ridd...

Could you please add these choices.

Secondly, if I point my browser at
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

without signing in and then search for any of my books, ocassionally the selection choices on the book page is Amazon, On-line stores, Libraries - Not Kindle, Amazon, Stores, Libraries.

I do not understand why there is a difference some of the time. This obviously is a nit, but I am curious about what is going on here.

Regards and thanks for the help. You guys and gals do a great job.

Lyndon Hardy

If you want to change your personal links then, they are set in the account settings.

Lyndon Hardy | 9 comments Hi Paula

OK, I understand a bit better now. I navigated viewmyprofile->editmyauthorprofile->editmyuserprofile->booklinks and found where I could select and order the vendors that popup under a book. I reduced the list and changed the order.

Now when I go to a random book, it works. I see Barnes & Nobel, Applie/iTunes, Kobo, smashwords.com, book depository, audible, googleplay, and indiebound -- in that order

But when I popup the same list for one of my own books. I see the same list but with Apple/iTunes missisng!

What is going on here?

Thanks again.

Lyndon Hardy

Hi Lyndon

Librarians are volunteers so we can't see what you see in your author dashboard. I'm thinking possibly you have a bug. If so, you need GR staff.
