Andreea Daia (andreeadaia) | 127 comments Hi -

I tried to create a new edition and instead I created a new book.
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61...

Also will someone please enlighten me as to what I did wrong? (on the Editions page, I clicked add a new edition) Obviously something went astray since I came out with a completely new book.

Thanks!

You didn't do anything wrong. The add edition feature only fills in some of the fields, they still need to be manually combined.

Andreea Daia (andreeadaia) | 127 comments I feel better now. :) Thank you!

Maarit | 429 comments Could someone combine these two books, so that both appear under the name Hälsningar från... instead of Terveisiä pahan..., which it happened to do for me when I tried to combine them myself?:

The upper link is the original book, lower link the Finnish translation of it :) Thank you very much!

Iluzija O. Istini | 241 comments the thing is, we don't choose which title will appear when searching. It is decided by number of ratings book has. Second title has 10 ratings while first has only 5. There is nothing you can do about it.

message 34: by J. (new)

J. (jgunnargrey) | 33 comments Hi, there, librarians. My historical mystery, Deal with the Devil, was originally published in two halves, so Deal with the Devil, part one came out, and then part two came out later as a separate book. But the publisher has now combined them into one edition, which will be the only version now sold. Should we delete part two and remove part one from that title's listing, or combine the two, or create a new, third entry? Here's the links:

Deal With the Devil, Part One
Deal with the Devil Part Two

Appreciate the help,

Gunnar

This one. Since the separate parts were already published, we don't remove them from the database.


message 36: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments A 3rd entry should be added, the two other editions stay as they are.

Here is the bare bones of the new edition

What is the format, can you link to a cover image, what is the date of publication and publisher name

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...


message 37: by J. (new)

J. (jgunnargrey) | 33 comments Done! Only the ASIN wouldn't take, because the publisher uploaded the full-length book into the Amazon entry for part one, reusing the ASIN.


message 38: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments So the full length one is a Kindle edition? not an ebook,

best to add a note in the description that the ASIN xxxx was reused from the first edition otherwise a librarian may delete in error


message 39: by J. (new)

J. (jgunnargrey) | 33 comments It's both, sorry. A similar procedure was followed on B&N and will be on Smashwords, OverDrive, etc.

Thanks for the tip about adding a note. I'll do that now.


message 40: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments The Kindle and ebook should have separate editions, again with a note indicating the B&N 249xxxx id is shared. These editions can be combined


message 41: by Evelien (new)

Evelien Fick (veelineen) | 12 comments Please combine:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...
(first one is e-book of second one)
Thanks!

Combined 46. The edition that corresponds to that Open Library record already has a cover image. Why would you assume the other two editions have identical covers?


message 48: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments 48 done


message 50: by Tntexas (new)

Tntexas | 404 comments #50 should be done. Wouldn't hurt to double check and make sure it went through, though.
