Diogo (diogoleitao) | 22 comments The Portuguese translation of Richard Dawkins' "Selfish Gene" isn't linked to the original book (there are no reader reviews nor other editions).

Also, the number of pages is missing:

The main text ends on page 360.
The epilogue of the special edition celebrating the 40th anniversary of the book ends on page 371.
The notes (some of them added in new editions after the book was published) end on page 456.
The bibliography ends on page 467, and that is the last numbered page.

I disclose all this information as I do not know what is the common practice here on Goodreads regarding which pages must be counted in (if anyone could elucidate me on that I'd be thoroughly pleased.
Thank you in advance.

They say it's 488 pages - that is counting will all the pages that don't contain text and aren't numbered.

Please include ISBN (or ASIN) with all page numbering requests, even when linking to the book.

How we count pages on Goodreads:

Diogo (diogoleitao) | 22 comments Ok, thank you. The ISBN13 is 9789896168285 and according to the rules you linked me to the book has 467 pages.
