Anne (AnneCurrin) | 15 comments I read a lot of non-fiction books. Some well over 400 pages. BUT...30-50 pages of the book can be appendixes, bibliography, index, etc; while the actual text is 300-390 pages. Does this count as a 400 page book? Do we include those extras at the back of the book?

Thanks!

The 400 pages should be pages that you actually read, if you read the appendixes and bibliography etc then it would count... Best wishes Debs :-)

Anne (AnneCurrin) | 15 comments Ok...that's what I thought too, Debra! And that's the way I've listed the books I plan to read in 2012. I have tons of books with over 400 pages of actual text. Have a great day!
