Maraya21 (The Reading Dragon) | 37 comments Hello,
The following book is missing all information, like Page Count, ASIN, Publisher, Editor etc.
It has an alternate cover edition with the info already added, though it is not specified as one.

The Kindle Edition currently sold through Amazon (bought 24/09/2017) is the one with no information here on GR.


ASIN: B0167QVK22

I hope i explained it correctly..
Thanks :)

P.S.: I wasn't sure where to post this one so sorry if it's in the wrong folder!

Arenda | 20816 comments Book Issues is the perfect folder for this request (and for almost all request where you are not sure which folder to use).

I've added a note about the alternate cover and asin to the description. An ASIN can only be added to one edition on GR, and has to stay on the edition that was first added to GR. That's why we add a note to the description of the alternate cover edition.

I've added page count and publisher. For publication date for an alternate cover, we use the date of the new cover. As I don't know what date that is, I've used the date this alternate cover edition was added to GR.

As for the editor, they shouldn't be added, so I've removed the editor from the edition with the ASIN.
