Hi I am currently reading Empire Rising by Thomas Kelly and I noticed that the page count was wrong. On here it says 704 pages when it is really 390 pages. I tried changing it but it wouldn't go through. How do I go about having it changed?

You can certainly change it in your catalogue. You entered from Amazon.com, and got whatever Amazon said. Edit your record (either in 'your books', or 'edit your book' from the work page.)

If someone else has it entered in their catalogue, you cannot change their data.

Bear in mind that different editions may have different page counts.

Bear in mind that different editions may have different page counts.

MarthaJeanne makes a very good point (well lots of good points). It looks like you added the large print edition to your catalogue (Thorndike Press publishes large print). That would explain the high page count.

Yep, I added the wrong edition, sorry.
