Also, some books although they claim to have 84 pages or what have you might really not. They might start counting pages on say page 10 so the physical page count might be correct where the author's count is well wrong. That is eight pages difference so it might be the publisher and not the tool. Smile. Got to love this murky muddy water we call proofreading. Shelley L.

If the book has no missing pages, then when you check the book back in, you can change the reported number of pages to the actual number of pages. If the text quality is excellent, and there are in fact no missing pages, so that the page number on the form is simply wrong, then you don't need to change the quality rating; just change the page number that is listed on the check in form. Of course, if either of those things is not true, that is, the text is of low quality, or there are pages missing, then when you check the book back in, either lower the quality rating, if the text quality is not too bad, or reject the book if the text quality is really bad, or if you cannot somehow get hold of the missing pages from the submitter or someone else. If the text has only a few errors here and there, and if you are reading through the book, then if you fix those errors, the book will be truly excellent when you check it back in. But if pages are really missing, then you need to get those and put them in the book, or reject the book as being incomplete.

Hi everyone, I checked out a book which was reported to have 76 pages. I had a brief look and the last entry in the table of contents starts on page 87. So, how can I correct the number of pages and the book quality from excellent to good. thanks much, Nancy Martin Oklahoma
