José  Capa Salinas (josevcapa) | 33 comments Hi everyone,

I have a little issue. I tried to add the book that I am currently reading. Typing the ISBN sends me to this: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I must say it is the book but with a few mistakes.

First, the cover. It is not that one, it is this one: https://www.amazon.com/Insomnia-Steph...

Also, the page number it is not entirely correct. It is 672, and the Goodreads page says it is 663.

I tried to add one as a New Edition, but the page does not allowed, because it has the same ISBN.

Thanks in advance.

Kakha (kakha_k) | 112 comments It is a paperback, right? Amazon says that the page count is 912. But you have a real book in your hands. Thus your info is preferable.
Corrected pages to 672.


Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments We had a cover fight on this edition some years ago... I reverted original cover.


José  Capa Salinas (josevcapa) | 33 comments Thank you so much!

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments But here is an ACE with the same cover now.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...
Is there a point in merging it, or should we just keep it how it was for the last 5 years?
i.e. with the changed cover on the first edition


José  Capa Salinas (josevcapa) | 33 comments Hi Olivia. I see that it was created this alternate cover edition. I think it suits better the issue. Thanks!
But, can you update the page number to 672. I have the book and it is definitely the right number.


Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Sorry José we will sort it out.
For now it's showing 'changed' cover again, but I want another opinion.


Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments I corrected page count on ACE, as it will stay with this cover or be merged to the same one.


José  Capa Salinas (josevcapa) | 33 comments Ok. I believe that the first edition that I mentioned was right as how it was. However, the new alternate version has this right cover but with the wrong page number.
Even Amazon agrees with me on that one: https://www.amazon.com/Insomnia-Steph...


José  Capa Salinas (josevcapa) | 33 comments I see it now. Thanks!
