Yaara | 18 comments I have just added this book.
On the front cover the title is as I have listed,
On the inside cover, there is an additional sub-title.
Should that be included in the book title on goodreads? Is there a format I should use (-, :, ; etc) to separate the main and sub titles?

See, under subtitle
