Gabriel Weedon | 10 comments Hi,
A few months ago I requested to have a cover added to a book. Although that was done, I feel this cover is better suited as it takes up the whole frame as opposed to the partial frame currently taken. Would you please add that cover to the book.

Thank you very much.

That does not look like a site we can use for book covers or other book data. Please see: https://help.goodreads.com/s/article/...

Take a photo of the book or scan the cover of it, then upload the file to some image hosting site (for example, imgur.com) and just post the link of it here. They can't use images from most of the less-known sites because of copyright protection laws.

Gabriel Weedon | 10 comments Hi,
I’ve added an image of the book cover to an image sharing site. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Please keep in mind not only that Goodreads Librarians are volunteers, who make book edits on their own time, but that tone is not always easy to perceive online.
