It's one of those dratted editions currently sporadically importing from Amazon. I merged it into the real book to move over all the users who added it.

So the "text only" thing is not a book? Is it a placeholder?

Merge = combine+delete

Anything with an ASIN that's neither Kindle nor Audible edition is one of these darn varmints.

Melody (runningtune) | 13259 comments How can you tell if it's Kindle or Audible ASIN?

By edition listed. Kindle editions are listed as such. e.g.: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10...

Audible editions don't import; they have all been manually added by users. But they should specify that they are audio editions, anyway.

Melody (runningtune) | 13259 comments How about this one 7 pack of different books? As I understand it, it should stand as a book.

Can't see why it wouldn't. Has a valid ISBN, even.
