Sarah I ran into a bit of a weird situation. The Movie Tie-In editions read as page 1 in book 1 to page 1137 in book 3.

The Fellowship of the Ring listed 398, actual 1-398
The Two Towers listed 725 pages, actual page numbers 403-725
The Return of the King listed 1137 pages, actual page numbers 731-1137

How should these actually read? If I read nothing but the final book it will register as 1,137 pages read but I'll only have read 406. By reading the entire trilogy, I've read 1,137 pages but if I enter the books separately it will show that I've read 2,260 pages.

Please see the final paragraph of the relevant Manual section:

And yes, it will artificially inflate users total page counts. We consider that preferable to requiring them to use a calculator determine what page they are on for status updates.
