Greg (wwwgoodreadscomgregs) | 1 comments I have 3 books (a series) on my author's dashboard that I have updated the covers on Amazon and now want my Goodreads cover images to be the same. I tried changing them myself but received a notice saying librarians are the only ones who can do so.

Here is my link: https://www.goodreads.com/author/dash...

Can I have the covers for THE PITS, YOU CAN RUN and LEX TALIONIS updated.

Elvenn | 2622 comments Deleting old covers goes against Goodreads' policy. This, so that each reader can add to their shelves the exact book edition they own, with the same cover, number of pages, etc., even if it's out of print.

When a cover is updated, we create alternate cover editions (ACEs) for them and move the ISBN/ASIN to that edition, so that anyone looking for the last edition of a book can find it easily.

I've added these ACEs:

The Pits:
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (kindle edition)
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (paperback)
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (audible audio)

You Can Run
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (kindle edition)
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (paperback)
I added the audible edition, which in Amazon is still showing the old cover: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Lex Talionis: An Eye for an Eye
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (kindle edition)
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (paperback)

For these new covers to show on your profile, you have to go to the chosen edition, click on "edit details" (below the book's description) and then click on "Set this book as the primary edition for this work" (about midway down the page).
