Jules Brown | 4 comments Hi there
I genuinely don't know how I've ended up with multiple entries of my book Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield); I've obviously got very confused by the process of adding new editions, alternate covers etc. Sorry about that.

1st edition is Takoradi to the stars (via Huddersfield): Travels from heart and home by a Rough Guide author, B07L45T9SG
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

2nd edition - the one I'd like to show as the default - is Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield), B087XBY1RX
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

As you can see, I have a second version of each and a blank cover version, and reviewers are being confused about which version to review - because some very recent reviews (of the second edition) say 'review of another edition'.

Please can you help restore some clarity to this book page!

Thanks so much

Jules Brown

You can set which version you want to be the default that shows in searches and on your page. Here are the directions:

Someone merged the edition with the blank cover, so it should go away within a day.

Jules Brown | 4 comments Thanks Scott, I can see the default version appearing now. I'm still unclear what to do about the two versions of each edition that appear to show?

Scott | 22115 comments You don't need to do anything. They are all valid editions and should remain in the database.
