Frank Tutone (ftutone) | 3 comments So, my ibook copy of this ebook says it has 826 pages but Goodreads says it is 300? I'm actually on page 561 but when I put this in my status update it says I finished the book?
Please correct the number of pages for this ebook version.
ISBN# 978-0-8041-3903-8

Tim (techthing) | 227 comments You linked to the hardcover version. The number there won't be altered, of course. Which ebook version do you have?

Frank Tutone (ftutone) | 3 comments As mentioned in my message, I have the ibook version from the Apple iTunes library. Didn't see this in the pull down list that was offered when I made the entry.

The only formats for which book-in-hand does not trump publisher/Amazon/etc. data are ebooks. User settings, precise model of ereader, and other variables can mean that the same book on your ereader and mine have different page counts. Therefore, for ebooks (including Kindle editions), the page number should come from the publisher.
