Stjepan Cobets | 20 comments Hi Librarians,

I've combined the editions of my book "The dream of the forest" but it puts the old book cover. There is a possibility to set up a new cover page that is combined because it does not allow me to do this. If you can, I'd like this edition to be the first in a combo edition.

With respect,
Stjepan Varesevac Cobets

See here for making the new cover the default: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

ETA Also please don't update book records of editions to include more chapters (f.e. changing I-II into I-III, and I-III into I-IV, and updating the page count). New editions should be added for those (separately!).

It often doesn't work to copy/paste links. If the last 3 dots at the end are black, and not green, it automatically goes to Harry Potter (a GR it joke, no doubt)

No idea of the books you want combined. You'll have to post again properly. :)

Not a joke, just the first books that were added when GR started, with a 1-digit book-id.
