CJ (mctilzey) | 16 comments I'd appreciate it if someone could add the proper book cover to the Russian edition of The Captain's Daughter. You should be able to source the cover photo at this site:

http://the-planet-books.com/Pushkin_C...

I found a copy elsewhere, but it didn't upload properly and I'm not able to change it.

Thanks!

The cover currently showing is identical to the one you linked to.


message 3: by CJ (new)

CJ (mctilzey) | 16 comments That's odd. When I go to the book entry, I just see a solid black square where the book cover should be.


message 4: by CJ (new)

CJ (mctilzey) | 16 comments I tried a different browser, and at least with my GoodReads login, it's showing up as a black square using either Safari or Firefox.

Amara Tanith (aftanith) It's showing up fine for me in Opera.


message 6: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 2443 comments I think the issue may be that there are multiple Russian editions of that book.

This is the one CJ means:

I would add the cover, but I'm on my tablet.

It also needs to be combined with the other editions.

That one does not have an ISBN that corresponds to the link.


message 8: by Amara (new)

Amara Tanith (aftanith) The cover CJ linked to is not the proper one for that ASIN. However, I found the proper cover and have uploaded it. Should be fine now.


message 9: by CJ (new)

CJ (mctilzey) | 16 comments Sorry for the confusion, it is the ASIN B007R4CRGC edition, which has the same cover as ISBN-13 978-1466204355.


message 10: by CJ (new)

CJ (mctilzey) | 16 comments Oops, rather the same cover as 978-1-908478-06-1. There's a very slight difference in the covers.


message 11: by CJ (new)

CJ (mctilzey) | 16 comments Well, this was curious: I finished reading a Kindle book, an English translation of Pushkin's The Captain's Daughter (ASIN: B005E90GNI). I searched for it by ASIN and found one without a cover (Amazon shows a cover). I marked this book as "read." When I did so, the Kindle Russian language version that I am also reading, Капитанская Дочка (ASIN: B007R4CRGC), disappeared from my "currently reading" shelf and appeared on my "read" shelf.

Rose Cimarron (Rose-C) | 20 comments Hello, I've found the correct image for the Mills&Boon edition of this book edition: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14...
but don't know if I'm allowed to upload from this source: http://www.easons.com/display.asp?ISB...
Could someone advise, please? If the source is ok, could you update the edition, please?
I have the paperback, so can confirm that ISBN 978-0-263-89520-9 has this cover.
Thanks


message 13: by Rose (new)

Rose Cimarron (Rose-C) | 20 comments And another one!
This book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...
ISBN 978-0-263-89528-5
The correct image is here: http://www.ebookmall.com/ebook/operat...
although it looks purple, whereas the real thing is more maroon/pink ;-)
Thanks

They both appear to be bookseller sites, and if they are, we can't use any data from it.

On the other hand, you can try a workaround to find a copy of the cover that we can use. If you save the bookseller's copy and use that to "search by image" in an engine such as Google, you might have better luck finding a legally usable image to link us to than if you just used title/isbn/keywords.


message 15: by Rose (new)

Rose Cimarron (Rose-C) | 20 comments Ok. Thanks for the advice. I'll have to do that tomorrow...it's 12:50 am here...[yawn]
What sort of sites are leagally usable? Just publishers?


message 16: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (last edited Jun 18, 2012 05:02PM) (new)

Primarily.

Also WorldCat and most other library sites.


message 17: by Amara (last edited Jun 18, 2012 04:56PM) (new)

Amara Tanith (aftanith) Covers you scan/photograph yourself are the absolute best. Publisher sites, author sites, and library sites are also good. Blogs, forums, and fandom sites will sometimes also have cover images, but check the image's actual URL to make sure they're not just hotlinking a bookseller site's file.

I found a copy at a library site, snagged it, and added it.

Found it at the publisher's site, snagged it, and added it.

Thanks very much for doing that. Huge hugs!

Derick Hudson (derickhudson) | 3 comments Hi Goodreads Librarians,
Can you please put the correct Amazon Kindle book cover onto my listed Kindle book:

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

The link to the book on Amazon is:

http://www.amazon.com/Dysfunctional-R...

Can you also update the channels where my book is available to purchase as only one of them works on your site. All my distribution channels are listed on my blog:
http://derickhudson.blogspot.ie/

Many thanks for your assistance!
Derick Hudson.

Before anyone gets started we need to know: Was the Kindle version ever published with the cover that's currently assigned to it? And can you supply us with a non-bookseller version of the cover? We're not allowed to snag it off of Amazon or any other bookseller's site.

And as far as booklinks ("channels"), each user selects their own. They are not set on a per-book basis.

Many thanks for the reply! You can source the correct cover from my blog here:

http://derickhudson.blogspot.ie/searc...

The cover you have may have been on Kindle for a couple of days in Jan but is actually the cover of my paperback version on Lulu.com.

Thanks again!

Sorry...just to add, the book cover picture is near the bottom of the blog page (second last post) called Dysfunctional Romance! Book Cover.
Thanks
