Bruno Rodrigues | 6 comments Hello.
I'm sorry if this is the wrong section. This is my first post.

I added a version (portuguese version) for the book 'Simple Statistics'.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...

However, when I try to insert the ISBN, I find out it is already taken (so I added the version anyway, without ISBN).

The ISBN is taken by this book 'Estatistica para Todos'.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Well, this book isn't a different book. It is the portuguese version of the first book 'Simple Statistics'. And it is the same version I added manually.

So I ask to merge this second book with the version I added.

Thank you and regards

The cover image in the edition I added was taken from here:

Bruno Rodrigues | 6 comments I see the books were already edited. Thank you for that.
However, they were not edited correctly.

I'll try to explain.
There is a book called 'Simple Statistics':
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...
I'll reffer to it as Book 1.

There is another book in Goodreads database, called 'Estatistica para Todos'.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
I'll reffer to it as Book 2.

Book 1 and Book 2 are NOT two different books.
Book 2 is the portuguese edition of Book 1.

So, in my opinion, the correct procedure would be to merge the two books. And that is why I asked that.

Thank you and regards

Emily | 14761 comments The only thing I did so far was to isolate the two editions for merging before recombining with the English edition.
Is that a bookseller site or the publisher?

If it is just a bookseller site, I'm afraid we can't use it. You can take a photo or scan of your own copy and upload it to your profile pictures, or you can find an image from a source on this list.

Bruno Rodrigues | 6 comments Hello Emily. thank you for your help.

The image is indeed taken from a bookseller site.
I have another image (a picture taken from me, to my book).
How can I upload it?

Thank you and regards

Bruno Rodrigues | 6 comments Hello,
OK, it is done.
I uploaded two versions, one is edited to be used as a cover image, the other is the raw image.
Thank you and regards

Emily | 14761 comments I have uploaded the photo. It is much better anyway. You can remove them from your profile if you wish.
