Paula (verbosereader) | 8 comments The Goodreads listing of the Clay Girl by Heather Tucker (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) says the paperback has 312 pages.

When in fact, the paperback has 352 pages. I know because I have a paperback copy, and it looks ECW Press also lists it as having 352 pages(https://ecwpress.com/products/clay-girl). Is possible to have this changed?

Thanks,
Paula

Arenda | 20808 comments Please provide the isbn for all page count requests, even when linking to the book.

For isbn 9781770413030, Worldcat has 345 pages. The way worldcat counts pages is usually more consistent with the way GR counts the pages. Amazon and publishers often include pages that should not be included according to GR policy.

Can you tell what is on pages 346-352?

345 is where the book ends. Pages 346-347 are the Author's Acknowledgements. Page 352 are notes from the publisher about obtaining an audiobook copy of the book.

Thank you, Arenda. I will make sure that I post the ISBN number for a page request next time. I appreciate your help.
