Dominick (dominickgrace) | 118 comments The following books need the following information added or corrected:

Garth
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...
should be entitled Garth Book One: The Cloud of Balthus

The book listed as another edition of this one:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...
should be entitled Garth Book Two: The Women of Galba and should have this cover image:
http://s296.photobucket.com/user/dgra...
It should be listed as published by Titan Books in August 1985, with a page count of 96.

Sex in the Comics
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6...
should be listed as having 215 pages and should have this cover image:
http://s296.photobucket.com/user/dgra...

The book Collier's Popular Press
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
should have this cover image:
http://s296.photobucket.com/user/dgra...


The book Another Brownie Book
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
should have this cover image:
http://s296.photobucket.com/user/dgra...

The book The Magic World
should have this cover image:
http://s296.photobucket.com/user/dgra...
It is also a hardback book, rather than unknown binding, and it is 380 pages long.

Bea All are completed except for The Magic World. For this book, there is no book link that is missing a cover. Do you have the ISBN so that I can check? We could set up an alternate edition if this is just an alternate book cover for an existing ISBN.

Dominick (dominickgrace) | 118 comments I apologize; I thought I had linked to the specific edition in my post, bue evidently not. It's this one: 0831757388

If you scroll down the list of all editions for the book, it's the 12th one that appears. It lists the correct publisher and publication date, as well as the isbn, but it says it is unknown binding and two pages long. There is no cover image, at least not that I am seeing!

Fixed, although are you sure it's 380 pages and not 280? I went with 280 because that was what WorldCat has, but I'll change it if you can confirm.

You are right, it is 280. Evidently, I need new glasses more desperately than I thought.

Don't we all? It's all that book reading, makes our eyes go early ;)

Dominick (dominickgrace) | 118 comments One other thing still needs fixing. The two Garth books are listed as different editions of the same book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...
and
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...

They are not in fact different editions of the same book, but two separate books, so they should have separate entries.

Bea Books separated. Are these books graphic novels or comic strip collections?

They are comic strip collections.

Phil On The Hill (philonthehillexon) | 67 comments Wow that was quick.

I think I have also just caused an error. I do apologise.

I have created a new book,
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
when I should have created a new edition.

message 13: by Abcdarian (new)
