The Bridge of San Luis Rey
Thornton Wilder

Goodreads has this edition listed at 144 pages, which is how Amazon also has it listed, but I'm holding it in my hands, and depending what you count as the end of the book, it's either 123 or 133. The end of the novel itself is page 123. Including the after materials ("About the Author" and "About the Book"), it goes to page 133.

So please update the page count to either 123 or 133 pages -- I'm just not sure which one the guidelines would choose.

Jeremy (jwarach) | 20 comments Cool, thanks.

So "officially", all of the after materials should be included in the page count...?

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments These are our rules -

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.
