How long does it typically take for images and descriptions to be approved? I have been adding images and descriptions all day, for lack of anything more pressing, and I'm simply curious as to when they will appear. Anyone know?

I just checked the image forum and it says there are no images pending as of 8:09 PM for today.

Make sure you click on upload book covers at the bottom of the page or they will not go through.

I was going to the book's data page, and then in the arrow drop down at the top right-hand corner of the page clicking on "Edit Book Data"

It has a place to upload a cover image there; why is it there if it isn't going to actually take it? I don't get it. I entered some of them again using the link at the bottom of the page. If that works, I may enter the rest. How frustrating.

I'm not sure why that link doesn't work.  I used it a few times myself before I found out it doesn't work.

Here's a thread that might help you in editing book data http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=60867

As for how long it takes, it depends on how many of us have time to approve.  We research the edits before we approve and add any missing information so some edits can be time consuming.  Plus we edit and add images ourselves.

Hope this helps!

It does - thank you. I looked in the help docs, but didn't find what I was looking for.
