Some books I've recently posted to my WL show the back cover on the book page instead of the front cover. I posted by ISBN and amazon features the front cover.

Anyone else have this happen?

Yes, I mentioned it a while back. It seems (and I've seen it) that some books (think it's at Amazon) rotate when you look at them, and apparently the book description is what is printed. Why I don't know but some books show up that way. Pat

I started noticing an upsurge of back cover images around early September. This may be a result from the way several sites (and some publishers) have now started using the scroll-over feature that changes images from front cover to back, and the database service used by PBS is sometimes feeding us back cover images rather than front cover images. Members are encouraged to submit front cover images for these listings if they are able so that we can replace back cover images that have been imported.

OK, then it's not some obscure feature of my new computer or WIndows 10. Good to know. Thanks.
