MIA: Missing bookcover after registration.

Recently [3/29] I registered 4 books, which all had shown bookcovers during the registration process... but afterwards have now shown up without covers.

The one common factor is that the books were in the Dutch language...

Books just before and after this quartet e.g.

worked fine; they kept their covers!


What is going on in the Dutch corner??? Afrikaans too?

This sounds like the ongoing problem with book-covers - it was fixed for the US database but, apparently, not for others.

What I was doing back when all the cover-lookups were failing in this way was to save the cover-image that appeared during registration, and then upload it once the book was registered. It was a bit time-consuming, but not too bad, and I really, really like having the covers {wry grin}.

If you'd rather wait until there's a fix, you should be able to go back through your bookshelf and use the "update cover" button to correct the images for most books, though there may still be some that just don't have cover-images in the databases that BC uses for lookups.

If you register the book using Amazon.com rather than Amazon.anything else, then it should work first time around.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
