Devastatingwildness | 17 comments Hello, Im librarian and I noticed recently I cant delete some books with very few reviews. I want to delete this one with 1 rate and other 'marked to read'.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

So, what's the reason?

(I already asked elsewhere to superlibrarians to delete it)


Thanks.

Scott | 22172 comments It wasn't connected to any of its other editions. It is now, and I have set it to merge.

Someone has marked it as done, so no need to delete your comment.


Devastatingwildness | 17 comments I should explain myself better, sorry for that. Also, you should have asked before merging that book. That book is a duplicate of this one:

Since the one I linked before had less reviews and was not merged to the other editions I think its the one that should be deleted.

Scott | 22172 comments The edition you linked was deleted. It had no cover or publication information at all.

Devastatingwildness | 17 comments I think someone already deleted the duplicate. Maybe super librarian? I dont know. But I have still the same doubt. I thought librarians could choose to delete a book with less than 5 reviews.

Edit: Oh, right! Emily was superlibrarian, almost forgot.

Librarians can only merge books with <5 reviews, not delete them outright. The edition you wanted deleted was not combined with the other edition, that's why you couldn't do it.

Oh yes! I feel dumb now because I forgot that explanation from the manual. Thank you.
