☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments If you mean the kindle edtion - that's locked for edits (by staff) happens sometimes for various reasons.
We had a question about it lately in the forum, you should be able to find that with the search function (as it's not too old that should work even with that sometimes a bit difficult search function here)

Arenda | 19993 comments The changelog for this edition is accessible (when you know the URL): https://www.goodreads.com/book/edits/...

In January 2012 some details (like publisher and pub date) were removed when GR couldn't use data from Amazon anymore.
Lots of Kindle editions I've seen that were influenced by that 2012 Amazon data removal had a cover uploaded in February 2012.
I have some doubts about these covers, but since we can't prove if that cover was available for that ASIN at some point, it will have to be treated as an alternate cover edition.

As for this edition being locked for edits, please see response from Rivka in another thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Lynda Kelly (lyndakelly) | 101 comments OK, guys, thanks for your help, I'll do the Contact Us way according to Rivka's posting, then. As you said, Tim, to keep associating it with the HCA is bonkers !!
The cover issue on a lot of books is very peculiar. I bought the new version yet when opened on my Kindle it's the nasty bland one, whereas on my tablet/phone it's the nicer cover again ! I don't really understand how that works. Should be a case of authors never being able to amend covers !!
Not sure how to mark this closed or do you guys close it off as done ?
Cheers,
Lynda~
