For future reference, WorldCat frequently does not count the last page (especially if it's just a few lines), so our counts are fairly often off by one from theirs.

Thank you. That is certainly good to know as I was not aware.

#7 What is the source of your page count? Worldcat lists 534 pages. I found the cover image on Amazon and added it; for any future cover image requests please see https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

Cover added here- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Brona's Books | 77 comments Thank you😊
But now I'm having the same issue with book 2 9780141388236.
My actual copy has 291 pgs but publishers website says only 256 - https://www.penguin.com.au/books/the-...

I will double check when I go to work (I'm in a bookshop so can check the other copies of the book to make sure).

Many thanks
Brona

Empress (the_empress) Hi Brona. Sometimes it depends on what additional content is in a book. We don't count previews from other books and other advertising content but an additional story we would count.

I've added the ISBN to this editions as details are identical: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

BTW Worldcat says 298. Can you check what is the content on the last 7 pages. It may be acceptable to add as well.

WOW please do! If I was you I would probably get fired from checking all the books and adding the data into Goodreads!

Brona's Books | 77 comments Hi Ellie
The book has 296 pages - 297 & 298 are the authors acknowledgements.
Thanks for your patience. I forgot to check as we were inundated with new releases for Nov this week!

Brona

Thanks!"


Hi Sana,

Please quote the ISBN number for the edition you want amended and the page count source. Thank you


message 21: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 74 comments Hi, could you change the page count for this book, please?
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
ISBN: 9788328021747
846 pages (book in hand)


message 22: by Empress (new)

Empress (the_empress) #21. Hi Sophie, I can see the edition was changed from 848 to 524 pages. Because of that I would need additional information:

Please confirm the ISBN matches the edition cover exactly. If there is ANY difference with either we will create a new edition.

Please confirm on what page does the novel end and what is the content between that page and page 846 (book previews, short stories, bonus novellas, etc)

Thank you

Sophie | 74 comments There is only one edition of this book in Poland. Well, maybe except an ebook if there is any.
The ISBN matches the book I have. The novel ends on page 843, then there are acknowledgements. Page 847 is blank and on page 848 there is information about the edition.
I don't know why someone changed the page count to incorrect number. Page 524 is a middle of a chapter.


message 24: by Empress (new)

Empress (the_empress) Thank you for confirming Sophie. I've updated the edition to the correct page count. (846)
