Karen (httpwwwgoodreadscomslowbookworm) | 13 comments Hi there :o)

Would it be possible for you to change the number of pages in the above isbn? I have just purchased this book (Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins) and there are 311 pages in it. Goodreads has it down as 96!!! I am sure it's probably come through that way from Amazon, but if you could be so kind as to correct it.

Many thanks.

Link here to the cover uploaded somewhere else online (another book site, photobucket, etc.) OR email it (include book title and ISBN to support AT goodreads DOT com.

Or become a librarian and upload it yourself. :D

Shane (vw67sqback) | 2 comments This is the ISBN I found for the Nook Book version, 9780439678131, and goodreads has the wrong number of pages listed for the ebook. I've got 198 on my iPhone, and was told that goodreads will list it as over 300 pages.

Because there is no standard for counting "pages" between the different e-readers, we use the page number from the publisher, which may conflict with the number of pages your e-reader counts.

Vicky, I totally understand that. This one just seems like a vast difference. I thought it on of the "editions" was listed as Nook Book or something else specific, it could more accurately be reflected. But, you guys definitely see the bigger picture :) I'll make do, I guess :(
