Freso | 100 comments I accidentally created https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio... since https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio... didn’t show up for me in searches. The former should probably be merged/combined into the latter.

Additionally, https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... is a stub that was created as I hit "Enter" instead of "Shift" in a textfield. It should either be deleted or merged/combined with https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... (ISBN: 9781523094264).

Kat, lover of bears... (kati3kat) | 7 comments I combined B00TIY6GH0 (Audible Audio version of https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) and it disappeared. Can someone please help? I can add it back in but I am hoping someone has the power to retrieve deletions. I have never had that happen before.

Emily | 14761 comments I see where you separated two Audible editions from that book record, but I do not see that particular ASIN. Humans can't retrieve book deletions. Maybe you could add that ASIN to the one that doesn't have it and recombine.

Always, before adding a new edition, I search Goodreads for the ASIN of the book in question. This book had two of them that I tried to combine. Somehow they are both gone. Should I assign the ASIN to the one without?

Someone's already done that (but forgot to mention it here): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

So, now when I search audible audio two editions come up. When I search ASIN: B00TIY6GH0 it is linked to one with 8 pages. I am not going to change anything after the last debacle, but I thought we were not supposed to put page numbers in Audio format.

That is a change I missed, Thank you.
