e-book info on GR

Does anyone else notice the covers, page #'s and other info is always wrong on GR? It drives me crazy and I'm constantly having to fix them? I'm glad I have librarian status or my OCD would send me over the edge.

It's not the kindle versions, it's always the e-book/nook books.

    Yes! It does irritate me. I didn't know I could fix it though.

    Yes ma'am :) If you have librarian status you can fix them.

    Ahh. I can't fix them then. I don't have librarian status.

  • i never really noticed (then again i have a kindle) but the page #s might be wrong because the type size can be changed-maybe one person had it smaller and one larger and that's why it's different?

    On the Nook, the font size doesn't change the page count.

    My page #'s stay the same when I change the font size. Does the kindle change?

    I'm not sure if it does or not but it's not a kindle issue-thought it might be with the nook.

  • I've noticed, but I figure if I was reading the book version, that is how many pages I would be reading so I don't let it bug me.

  • What bothers me the most WRT page counts is when you think you are downloading a 400 page book, and the last 70 pages are advertisements and excerpts from other books.

    I think you have to have a minimum of 50 books read/rated, then you can just request for it. They will approve anyone that has read at least 50 books from what I remember.
