We cannot use cover images from Amazon and other booksellers. Please link to another source, like a publisher site, an author site/blog, a library, etc.

Andrea I'm sorry! This is the author's website:

Splinker (Goodreadssplinker) | 11 comments Apologize if this is not the right area to make the request. I have my book on goodreads, but no cover. Is it possible to have the cover image? Here's the amazon link. http://www.amazon.com/Ive-Been-Deader...

Or you can find it on my blog. Ivebeendeader@blogspot.com

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments Amazon and bookseller links cannot be used. Please provide either publisher or other link to the cover

Also a link to the book in question or the ISBN/ASIN

Splinker (Goodreadssplinker) | 11 comments WIll Smashwords.com work? http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/... Obviously, I have the cover image file on my pc.

Or you can find it on Ivebeendeader.blogspot.com


message 9: by Tntexas (new)

Tntexas | 404 comments Done. I used the cover from the blog and the ASIN number from Amazon to locate the book's entry. I'm pretty sure I got the right one. You might double check it just to be sure.

Lisa McCubbin (goodreadscomlisa_mccubbin) | 4 comments How do I change the book cover of my own book, Mrs. Kennedy and Me? I have the Jpeg file for the book cover but when I try to change it says I must speak to a librarian.


message 12: by Tntexas (new)

Tntexas | 404 comments If you can post a link to the picture you're wanting to use (from a non-Amazon or other bookseller link), someone can do it for you.

Those are both bookseller sites, which cannot be used for cover images.


message 27: by Andreea (new)

Andreea Daia (andreeadaia) | 127 comments I know but I couldn't find any library who owns this book. I couldn't find it even on the publisher's page.

Is there an alternative to using images for this kind of situations? I'm thinking that if I were the person who created this entry, I'd had the option to upload the cover image directly from my computer.

Thanks!


message 28: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 41710 comments Mod
If you own the book, or have it in your possession, you can scan the cover image yourself.

Which would be subject to the same source guidelines.


message 29: by Andreea (new)

Andreea Daia (andreeadaia) | 127 comments That's useful. Thank you.


message 30: by Tntexas (new)

Tntexas | 404 comments I'm pretty sure I found a copy of the cover at a site called chef-opedia.com. They do have a store (which is where I located the book), but they're not just a bookseller. The site also has blogs and recipes and news items associated with it as well so I thought that might make it an acceptable source. Anyway, I went ahead and added the cover since I've got to log off soon; but if the picture comes from an "illegal" source after all, feel free to remove it. Or let me know and I'll take care of it later tonight.

Alan | 8 comments Hello,

The cover for my book, Furnaces of Forge, is missing Furnaces of Forge

You can find the cover at my author site:

If you would add the cover, I'd be grateful.

Kind regards

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21...

The cover can be found here: http://openlibrary.org/works/OL291479...

Both editions (paperback and hardcover) have the same cover.

Also, please combine with http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21....

Thanks!


❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) #39 Done. Should I have put the same cover on
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21... ?

If not, let me know. I added it and then realised it wasn't the same edition as the other two and therefore might have had a different cover.

I am really not sure what edition that is: it has no publisher. After some googling, I couldn't find any edition published that year. I did a search by the description and I came out with the author's website http://anthonyfaveni.com/books/skywat.... Maybe that cover is the safer choice, but without a publisher it's hard to say which one is correct.

Sorry - I wish I could be of more help.


message 40: by Andreea (new)

Andreea Daia (andreeadaia) | 127 comments Another one:

1) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/77... and
2) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...
have the same cover with
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/98... (all of them are the same "edition" on different formats).

Thanks in advance.


❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) Done. :)

Iza (Pages Full of Stars) (pagesfullofstars) | 24 comments Hello, I've got an edition of a book without a cover: www.goodreads.com/book/show/11541807-...

Here's the cover (there's also a hardback edition but in paperback, the cover is more green): http://i.imgur.com/xkGNy.jpg

Could you please upload the cover? I also have the description in Polish for both, paperback editon and hardcover edition that's here - http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/64...

Description:

Lipiec 1209: Alais, 17 letnia mieszkanka Carcassonne, otrzymuje od ojca jedną z trzech ksiąg, w których zawarty jest sekret Świętego Graala. Chociaż dziewczyna nie potrafi zrozumieć słów i symboli ukrytych w manuskrypcie, czuje, że jej przeznaczeniem jest ochrona księgi. Wymagać to będzie od niej poświęcenia i wiary, by dochować tajemnicy o Trylogii Labiryntu.

Lipiec 2005: 30-letnia dr Alice Tanner natknęła się na dwa szkielety podczas archeologicznych wykopalisk poza murami Carcassonne. Wewnątrz ukrytego grobowca Alice doświadcza przejmującego uczucia, że stało się tu coś złego, oraz pewności, że potrafi zrozumieć starożytne napisy wyryte w skalnej ścianie. Jednak zbyt późno zdaje sobie sprawę, że trafiła w sam środek niebezpiecznej przygody i serii zdarzeń, nad którymi nie umie zapanować, i że jej życie zostało związane z losem katarów sprzed 800 lat.

Tntexas | 404 comments #48 - Someone else got the cover, but I changed the description. I think I also managed to track down the other book and changed it as well. Would you double-check and make sure I got the right editions?

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/64... (hardcover)

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11... not marked, but it's the link you provided)


Iza (Pages Full of Stars) (pagesfullofstars) | 24 comments I checked and the description is okay, thank you! :)
And you're right, I didn't notice the binding is not marked. My paperback edition has the same details except the page count - it's got 480 pages, so I don't know if it's the same edition.

Do the ISBNs match? If they do, then I don't see a problem with going ahead and marking this one as a paperback.


Iza (Pages Full of Stars) (pagesfullofstars) | 24 comments Yep, they match.
