Catherine (catherine_mooncakes) | 18 comments Hello!

Some books (Ex: ASIN B07TXBYTYX) don't have their published dates displayed on the My Books page, only on their own page. Do any of you know why, and is it fixable?

Also https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... (No listed ISBN or ASIN) doesn't have a published date listed; it's January 23, 2017.

Thank you!

Emily | 13505 comments I set the original publication date for the first one (not just the edition specific one), see if that changes how it displays.
If not, then I don't know why.

For the second book, it was an alternate cover edition, meaning they have the same ASIN with different covers. Since this one is newer, I moved the ASIN to it and updated its information. The original publication day is 1/23/17 but the publication day for that particular edition is when the cover was created.

Catherine (catherine_mooncakes) | 18 comments Ah, it did. Thank you!

Would you be interested in doing more? There's quite a few, so if not, that's fine.

Gotcha, thanks!

You are welcome to list them here. Others will probably be happy to work on them. If you would, please number them and post both a link to the book on Goodreads and on Amazon where it shows the release date.
I wouldn't do more than 5 per post.
