It is quite common for the page count of your ebook to be less than the number listed on the book’s product page. For instance the product page might say 384 pages, but the PDF is 324 pages and the EPUB is 183!

We are not trying to be intentionally disingenuous and want to avoid any disappointment you might feel if this happens to you with your ebook purchase, so below are the reasons why this could be the case.

Firstly, we will address the huge difference in pages between the PDF and the EPUB. EPUB is designed for reflowable content. This means there aren’t any fixed page numbers, the content is reworked to best fit the device it is being viewed on. What may appear as 183 pages on one device might show up as 269 pages on a different device, depending on how the layout is resized to work with that specific device.

Having covered the EPUB discrepancy, it then raises the question “Well the PDF is meant to be an exact page for page copy of the printed book, why would that ever be different?”

The most common reason is that sometimes the publisher will include the acknowledgements, prelims, or table of contents in the page count, even though they are not strictly in the page count (they are normally numbered using roman numerals). This inflates the number of pages and gives an inaccurate page count.

Also, when preparing a printed paper book the publisher needs to make the page count divisible by 4 for the printer. So blank pages will be added to pad the book out in order to create the right page count. However for ebook PDFs these pages are not needed and can be removed (although not all publishers remove them).

Finally, sometimes the page count that the publisher gives us is just plain wrong. Often publishers will record the page count for a book when they receive the manuscript from the author. After editing and typesetting and the rest of the production process the finished page count can be quite different. But the publisher may forget to update the page count on their system, meaning we get sent incorrect data.

To sum up: No matter what page count your ebook displays, you are still receiving the same amount of words. There is still the same amount of content and nothing is being lost in the transition from printed book to ebook, regardless of format.
