Lynna, were they ever sold with the old covers, or were they changed before going on sale?

mlady_rebecca | 593 comments We don't change valid covers. You would add the new versions as alternate editions. As for which cover dominates, that is based purely on popularity.


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* (erinpaperbackstash) | 93 comments If you just try to add another image when the book already does have a cover image, it will not add it as a cover but just as "more images" to browse. Seems you've figured this out but just letting you know in case. :) I would do this for you but don't know the protocol for existing covers, I only add covers when the edition doesn't have one.

If they were sold with the covers currently on GR, we don't change them. As mlady_rebecca said, we add alternate-cover editions instead.

how can I add a cover for a book but it wasn't me who added this book?

example:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10...

and I got the pic already.

P.S: this book is the Arabic version of "Undress your stress by Lois Levy"

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...

If these are the same book, I can merge them for you.
