T.M. Payne (booknooknuts) | 421 comments Is it possible to have the links to other book sites not just Amazon ? if so how do we do that? Thank you
Example: editions mostly I see paperback and Kindle option if we choose ebook how would we direct it to another site such as B&N. Do we need to have several ebook editions?

Goodreads staff has posted an explaination about Goodreads book links here: https://help.goodreads.com/s/question...

From the perspective of a reader and a volunteer Librarian, it's always helpful when authors add a book record (add an edition) per unique identifier they have of their published book, as being able to select the specific edition we want to buy before we click on our customized book links makes them work as best as possible.

For me this edition of yours leads to the corresponding book detail page on B&N: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

annob | 1487 comments Good to hear. :)

I'm going to revert a couple of changes where you removed the Kindle format from a few of your existing Goodreads records. It's not allowed to delete such book data even if the book is no longer available in that format.

Here's a link to an instruction on the permitted ways to indicate an edition is out-of-print: https://help.goodreads.com/s/article/...
