MsButterfly MsButterfly (MsButterflyLIB) | 3 comments Good day Librarians,

I just want to ask if it's possible to delete book covers and replace them? The covers uploaded here doesn't match the ISBN of my published books. I think those that are uploaded here are copies from my online website in which at that time my books weren't published yet by a publisher. They just got published this year. I was wondering if I can upload the covers of my books that are really in the market and that are matched to the ISBN?

Here's the link to the books:

Thank you so much!

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See and

As the author, you will have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how:

Also, please do not upload new cover images to the "more photos" section, which is explicitly not for covers.
