The Goodreads Librarian manual has a section on this:

"This field is for entering the number of pages of a book. 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."

Since bibliographies are to be counted as part of the total page count, those pages should not be removed.

Please clarify. Is this a bibliography of books cited in this book, or a listing of other books by this author?

Thanks for the clarification. Those would not be included in the page count. Set to 261.
