Laurie (laurielew) | 5 comments I have two books that I updated with new covers: LOVE on a LIMB, and THE DRAGONS OF ALSACE FARM. I'd like to have the newest cover be the one that shows up with readers search for it, and I was wondering if it's possible to have the cumulative reviews appear despite which version people see. In truth, I'd like the old versions to disappear because all my marketing is directing readers to these new covers. Is that possible?

Thank you! Laurie Lewis

please follow the steps below to set up default editions.

The old covers need to stay, as Goodreads is a book cataloguing site, not a bookseller. As such, we don't ever delete old covers.

This should already be the case. If editions were added or combined within the last few days, there may be a caching delay.
