Charles Hang | 24 comments While adding the ebook version of Ciaphas Cain: Choose Your Enemies (978-1-78030-939-2), I accidentally selected "Nook" instead of "ebook" as the format. Is there any way that could be changed?

Additionally, the ebook has the same cover image as the paperback already added, so if that image could be copied over, that would be appreciated.

Finally, the paperback version has a typo in the title--there should not be two "Choose Your Enemies" in it.

I realize that it's possible not all of these problems fall into this forum, but I hope you don't mind my just making one post about these issues. Thank you for your help!

Covers cannot be copied from one edition to another. Removed.

Is this true even if the cover of the second edition is the same as the cover of the first, as is the case here?

What is the difference between the two editions, if the cover is the same? If they have different ISBNs/ASINs, they are different editions and a cover cannot be copied from one to another.

If they don't have different ISBNs/ASINs and the cover has not changed, then that sounds like a new printing, not a new edition.

One of them is a paperback, the other is a ebook. Presumably, they have different ISBNs, but they have the same cover image.

If they are indeed the same, there should be a source for the ebook showing the cover and its ISBN.

But covers cannot be copied from one edition to another.


Charles Hang | 24 comments Here's a source showing the cover for the ebook:

https://www.blacklibrary.com/all-prod...

I own the book and can confirm that the existing ISBN corresponds to the cover for the other edition; let me know if you need more documentation.


Charles Hang | 24 comments Is this an acceptable source for a cover image?

It's not a bookseller's website and it is a "public archive," or at least I believe it is.

If so, could a Librarian add the image to this book (Ciaphas Cain: Choose Your Enemies (978-1-78030-939-2)?

https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...

Places like LibraryThing or Shelfari aren't allowed, and I assume that your Lexicanum would be similiar.

Okay, looking at your list, it appears that publishers' websites are an acceptable source for book covers. Black Library is the publisher for this book, so could a Librarian add the cover from the link below?

Thank you for your help!

I own a copy of this book; can I upload a picture verifying the ISBN and associated cover? If so, how should I do that?

I just wanted to follow up about this question. Thanks!

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1770 comments If you scan/photograph your cover we can add that to the book.

We cannot use the one from the publisher's site even if it matches yours because they don't have the ISBN listed on the page and we must match that on the page we take the cover from.

Where do I upload the scanned/photographed cover?

Scott | 24909 comments You can put it in your account pictures section.

I've done that; it is here: https://www.goodreads.com/photo/user/...

Could the photo be added to the book now?


message 19: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26898 comments Done.

You can remove it from your photos now if you wish Charles :)


Charles Hang | 24 comments Thank you!
