Chad Corrie | 17 comments Hello,

I wanted to inquire if it was possible to remove the following titles from my page and your system. I have done a search on Amazon and other sites and these ebooks do not exist. The publisher has removed them some years ago and so I was curious why they were still being listed on Goodreads when no one is able to access them/read them to even make a review or comment. Further, I have a new book coming out with a different publisher (which I’ve already posted on the page) and because it shares the same name I didn’t want to have any confusion with any older books. From my previous searches I didn’t think this was going to be a problem but I guess I didn’t take the present situation with Goodreads into consideration. So if you’re able to please remove these two titles it would be a very much appreciated.

The two titles are as follows:

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


Also the first title listed seems to have had an excerpt added at some point in time. Is is possible to have that also removed as it is something I didn't put up and is not the same material nor the same material as the new title I've added, but folks might get confused since they share the same title and not read the small print about the excerpt not being from the same (current) title.

Thank you for your time and help.

Chad Corrie | 17 comments In the very least could you remove the except connected with one of them? I never uploaded it and I really don't want to confuse folks who might come across it looking for the new book who shares the same name.
