If it's a good book, there could be many pages, if not then two would be too many.
As many as it takes to tell the story while keeping the interest and enjoyment of the reader.
I remember reading The Forgotten Door, as a kid (and as an adult) and it has 140 pages. Perfect length. I've read series, like those by David Eddings which were thousands of pages. Also, perfect length.
There used to be a Myth about how long children's books should be. That was, until Harry potter came out.
For me, somewhere between 300-450 pages unless the story is spectacular and I don't want it to ever end.
I enjoy the old Shirley Jackson short stories.
Usually about 300-500 .... but I always have a hard time letting go of a really good story when I'm fully into it.
I have no page limit when it comes to books. I have read books with as many as 500 pages and as little as a 100.
I like when it's more than 100 at minimun, even if I read many short stories. I just love seeing the story develop. With short stories I normally just end up wanting more of it :D
Really? I can't love short stories because I enjoy getting into a book and staying with it for days. See how different we all are.
OK I am reading Dab Brown - Angles and Devils right now almost done the pages are 713. I know I will be sad it is done because I am loving the story.
Oh no it is Dan Brown. I hate making mistakes like that. Foregive me pleazzzzzzzzzzzzz.
A book should have enough pages to present what the author has to say.
