Chris (caterix) | 2 comments I'm trying to fill in some missing page counts, but when looking on various booksellers and google books etc, the page counts seem to be different on every site I visit! Could anyone please advise where the most accurate page count could be found, if I don't have the physical book available? Also, is it usual for hardback and paperback versions to have different page counts?

Thanks

❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) We like Worldcat.org - it's information tends to be the most accurate.

And yes, it's very common for Paperbacks and Hardcovers to have differing page counts.
