276 pages, I had to count them.

I couldn't find an AISN, ISBN, or page numbers anywhere else.

The only formats for which book-in-hand does not trump publisher/Amazon/etc. data are ebooks. User settings, precise model of ereader, and other variables can mean that the same book on your ereader and mine have different page counts. Therefore, for ebooks (including Kindle editions), the page number should come from the publisher. Since the Amazon listing no longer exists, there is no reliable source for the number of pages of this book. Edit: In fact, even when the page existed, in had no page number: http://web.archive.org/web/2012022416...

In fact, the last time you made this request you asked for a different number of pages. https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Shaun (shaun2014) | 118 comments Reyhaneh - please always include an ISBN or ASIN when asking for page updates, even when linking to a book. Per this locked topic.

Thank you!


message 8: by Reyhaneh (new)

Reyhaneh | 20 comments I read that topic, but neither of them have ISBN/ASIN and for first one just the edition exist.


message 9: by Shaun (new)

Shaun (shaun2014) | 118 comments I updated the book in message 5 since there was no previous page count listed. I have no way to verify if the information is correct.

As for the book in message 6, WorldCat and Amazon matches the current page count listed at 173. Do you have the book? What comes after page 173, if anything?

Reyhaneh | 20 comments I'm glad about your responsibility.
I read both of them, but I haven't.
The first one isn't renowned book, so I could only refer to persian online bookshop. Google translator or I could help out;)

For second book, according to frequency of published years, variation of editions and ... 3 pages are acceptable.
Thank you

We cannot use bookstores (with the exception of Amazon) as sources of book data, including page numbering. Moreover, ebooks have variable page numbering. User settings, precise model of ereader, and other variables can mean that the same book on your ereader and mine have different page counts. Therefore, for ebooks, the page number should always come from the publisher.


message 12: by Reyhaneh (new)

Reyhaneh | 20 comments Thanks for your information. However all mentioned books are paperback, a bit of diversity are common. Even for روان شناسی تیپ های شخصیتی نه گانه by پروین دقیقیان I know different page counts by one publisher in different years.

Which is why we ask for ISBN with page count requests.


message 14: by Reyhaneh (last edited Apr 28, 2015 10:12AM) (new)

Reyhaneh | 20 comments Yes ma'am.;) But it hasn't reliable ISBN.
I find, but I'm not sure.
9646070213, published in 2008, 339 pages.
But I can't find 2011 edition ISBN with 336 page numbers.
In my country ISBN called "شابک",and I understand relation between them now:D all Books are found by name and publisher and ISBN isn't used in general.

lethe | 14195 comments The book you linked to in #6 does have an ISBN though: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...


message 16: by Reyhaneh (new)

Reyhaneh | 20 comments Sorry I ask here.So...
I added two books when I didn't know ISBN role. Now I can't edit them and add ISBN.
For https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2..., ISBN is 9786006304649
And for https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...بهترین سال زندگی ISBN is 9789646516410.


message 17: by lethe (new)

lethe | 14195 comments Added both.


message 18: by Shaun (new)

Shaun (shaun2014) | 118 comments thank you lethe and rivka for the help. And thank you Reyhaneh for the follow up information.

There is still a problem with this title though (#6).
This edition https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... has the ISBN-10, this one https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... (ebook) the ISBN-13.

According to Amazon, the cover of the latter is right: http://www.amazon.com/Chamadan-Buzurg...

What to do?


message 21: by Reyhaneh (new)

Reyhaneh | 20 comments According to my knowledge, that ebook ISBN is wrong. Both ISBN-10 and ISBN-13 refer to paperback and ebook publisher copy ISBN-13 of paperback to show that edition became pdf.
I check on other ISBN that fidibo(ebook publisher) used, all of them are paperback ISBN, not ebook.


message 22: by Reyhaneh (new)

Reyhaneh | 20 comments Base on http://www.amazon.com/Chamadan-Buzurg... , could you change the cover of https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... ? And delete ISBN13 that wrongly wrote for ebook edition??
