The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) Just so you know, according to Goodreads im 151% of the way through 'Birth of a Killer' by Darren Shan. I'm on page 243 out of 261, but Goodreads says there's 160 pages in the book. Also you have 10 extra pages in Nan Willard Cappo's 'Cheating Lessons'. The are many more and I will update you here when I can check my other books, but for now I'm sure I've not read 'Birth of a Killer' one and a half times.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Andy, can you link to the specific edition of that book that you're reading, or post its ISBN? We want to be sure that we're updating the right edition, because they can have different page numbers.

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) Really? Did not know that. Ummm, ok, hang on a minute, I'll get it.

message 5: by Cait (new)

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Different editions are pretty likely to have different page numbers, especially on the popular books which have been printed multiple times. I've corrected this one to 261 pages -- just come back with more links and page numbers if you find any others incorrect!


message 6: by The (new)

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) Will do. Oh, duh. I forgot I also listed Cheating lessons. One more minute.

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) ISBN 0689860188 (ISBN13: 9780689860188)


message 8: by Cait (new)

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments That one should be 262 pages?


message 9: by The (new)

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) Yes, it has 10 too many pages. It's boring book I have to read for school, and 10 extra pages for this book is what might kill me!


message 10: by Cait (new)

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Well, I can't make the book more interesting, but I can make its page count accurate! :)


message 11: by The (new)

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) Saves me 10 pages of boredom. I have a long of books I would suggest everyne to read, and a very short list of books everyone should avoid. It's one of about 5-10 books on the avoid list.

Are you certain that's the edition you have? Because WorldCat (whose page numbering, unlike Amazon's, is most often correct) confirms the number we have now for that ISBN. However, this edition - 0606106707 (ISBN13: 9780606106702) - has the number you indicate. We definitely go with actual book in hand over any website, but please double-check the edition/ISBN.

Those are two different ISBNs. Is the book in your hand a hardcover or a paperback?


message 19: by The (new)

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) paperback
i think the publisher is Graphia or something.


message 20: by rivka, Former Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 45527 comments Mod
Ok. Then that's this edition.


message 21: by The (new)

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) does that edition also have a green color as well as red?


message 22: by rivka, Former Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 45527 comments Mod
Looks like the red was a pre-pub cover, and it was actually published with yellow. And we have an alternate cover edition with the green.


message 23: by The (new)

The Pyromaniac00 (pyromaniac00) alright then..
