David Raz (davidraz) | 4070 comments You might want to open a new thread for each request.

I'm a bit hesitant on The Kite Runner since four different librarians already set different page numbers for this edition, from 336 to 324 to 344 and then back to 324. None of them used 340. 336 is the number on Amazon and on all the other book sellers I could find.
Can you please try to list what each of those numbers may include?

message 20: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments Extra pages including:

A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings including Appendix and acknowledge.

The Kite Runner including Afterwards and Acknowledge.

The Family Corleone including acknowledge.

Rest of them just extra pieces of pages. I think it is must be fonts size to make more pages.


message 21: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments You were right The Kite Runner has 344 pages. page of 344 is empty. the writer didn't write anything in that page.

does the pages count if it add a page empty or add chapter like appendix, acknowledged and index.

Hang on, don't change pages yet cos it seems there are extra pieces of chapter there are few books didn't include the number of pages. Wait until I confirmed it.

David Raz (davidraz) | 4070 comments I updated A Game of Thrones, The Kite Runner and A Clash of Kings because there were previous edits with those numbers, suggesting someone removed pages they should have included.

You did not provide an ISBN for "A Thousand Splendid Suns - 424 pages" so I can't tell which edition you have.

Before I continue, I want to be certain of something. You write "I got this ISBN number from Goodreads" which worries me a little. Is the ISBN from goodreads or from the cover of the book in front of you?

A second thing I want to be certain about, in these numbers you should not include advertisements, so I want to make sure you didn't.


message 30: by David (last edited Feb 05, 2017 02:59AM) (new)

David Raz (davidraz) | 4070 comments Also, you did not provide ISBN for The Sicilian and The Autobiography of Malcolm X


message 31: by David (new)

David Raz (davidraz) | 4070 comments For Silverthorn, the ISBN you listed is an ebook. I'm going to stop updating until you clarify.


message 32: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments I am using ISBN from Goodreads because I have same editions as these books. I have researched about these book in Amazon but unfortunately the numbers of pages of these books weren't accurate.


message 33: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments I understand what you mean


message 34: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments I have same front covers as these books from Goodreads's ISBN but the pages weren't accurate. Do you understand what I mean?


message 35: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments It is same editions the ones I got


message 36: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments The Sicilian
ISBN13: 9780099587989


message 37: by David (last edited Feb 05, 2017 03:41AM) (new)

David Raz (davidraz) | 4070 comments Same front covers is not enough. You need to have the exact same ISBN on the book (inside or on the back cover), or it may be a different edition with a similar cover.


message 38: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments A Thousand Splendid Suns
ISBN13: 9780747585893


message 39: by Hasham (new)

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments Ok I will have a look inside ISBN.

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments A Game of Thrones ISBN 978-0-00-744803-6 9 780007448036. I am waiting until you got The right book of A Game of Thrones.

David already updated the edition with this ISBN, see comments #3 and #29.


message 44: by Bea (new)

Bea Please note that GR uses Worldcat for confirmation of page count. Amazon page count is used primarily for Kindle books which are not on Worldcat.


message 45: by Bea (new)

Bea Hasham wrote: "A Game of Thrones ISBN 978-0-00-744803-6"

For this ISBN, Worldcat does not give a page count. I went directly to the publisher and found that, for this ISBN, the page count is given as 864.


message 46: by Bea (new)

Bea Hasham wrote: "A Thousand Splendid Suns
ISBN13: 9780747585893"


Worldcat states that the correct page count is 419. This matches the GR entry.


message 47: by Bea (new)

Bea Maybe this information will help:

From the librarian manual: The number of pages in a book is meant to include all content except for advertisements and preview chapters for other books. Included end material may include acknowledgments, afterwords, appendices, bibliographies, glossaries, indexes, notes, and suggested discussion questions.

Introductory material paged using roman numerals is not included in the total page count.

Hasham Rasool | 179 comments Thank you.

Although GR has a single entry for this ISBN13, Amazon notes that this ISBN13 is actually a set of four books. Worldcat does not list any entry for the ISBN13. An internet search did not find an acceptable source for the ISBN13. No entry found on Arrow Publishing for this book either.

If you have the book that matches this ISBN13, please provide the page count using the info above.

This book has no page count on Worldcat, but the publisher states that the page count is 864 pages for this ISBN13. This differs greatly from the GR entry for the same ISBN13.

I made no changes in the GR entry at this time. Please verify that the additional pages contain info allowed on GR to count in the page count.
