Anaïs (anaisools) | 43 comments Hi,

The Librarian Manual says I'm not allowed to replace existing covers on Goodreads.

A few books that I found have very low quality, correct covers. I own these books (same isbn), so I could take a picture and replace it with a new, better quality picture of the same cover.

Would this be a violation of the Goodreads Policy about replacing covers?

An example of a cover I'd like to replace: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
