Katy Ames | 9 comments Hi. Per the GR instructions, I'm trying to add new editions for 3 books because the COVERS and SERIES TITLE have changed (but not ISBN/ASIN or book titles).

I've added the new Kindle edition - published 8/16/18 - for After the Island (along with the paperback edition, which is also new). Is it possible to make the 8/16 edition the default listing?

Also, I've tried to do the same thing for After the Fall (book 2 in the series), but receive an error message because the ISBN is the same. Should I add the new edition without the ISBN and then just request a librarian make it the default?

Just trying to do this all correctly & follow the GR guidelines. Thanks so much for the help!

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Hi Katy,
I noticed you have added Kindle editions with ISBN number.
Please note that Kindle editions have ASIN as an identifier.
Were the books available as ebooks from retailers other than Amazon or are these duplicated Kindle ediitons?

Also, please do not change any data, including series name, on the old editions. The new editions will reflect the changed series title, but the old ones are keeping the one they were published with.

Here are the alternate cover editions:
#1 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
#2 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
#3 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

To set the new editions as default ones please follow the steps from this link: Setting default edition


Katy Ames | 9 comments Hi Olivia,

Thanks for the assistance and the information. Understood re ISBN vs ASIN. The electronic version of these books have only retailed on Amazon.

I was able to set the default edition for the 1st book without any difficulty. Will do the other two shortly.

Many thanks for the help!!

#5, 6, 7 were already on Goodreads, I combined them with other editions

You might want to set the new editions as default - the ones that will come up in searches and will show on your profile. Here is how: Setting default edition

Also, it gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book or author is also used for other books. Please next time start a new one for other books.
