Katie (BooksRUs) (katiesbooksrus) | 131 comments I have a few books that don't show the publishing dates on my shelf, yet when I go into the record itself it shows a publishing date. I've attached the records and the publishing dates for all of them.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Katie,
please note there are two publication dates on Goodreads.
One is the publication date of the specific edition edition (this is the one you see when you go into the book record) and the second is the book original publication date (this is probably the one you have set up to display on your bookshelf as I can see it is missing from these records). If the original publication date is set up (as it should be), and it is different than the edition publication date you will see
Published [edition pub. date] by [publisher] (first published [original pub. date])
when you go into the book record.

I added original publication date to all listed books.
