I'd like to search for books that are 750 pages or longer.  (I love big books; who doesn't, girls??! HA)

Anyone have any idead;  I've got brain fog going on here....


Thanks - Karen

Karen, I'm unaware of a way to search for 750-page books on PBS ... but if you are on Goodreads, there are two lists of titles that you could search for here on PBS:

Books Over 750 Pages

Big Fat Reads Worth The Effort 2.0

Out of curiosity I tried a 'books of 750 pages or more' amazon search. It didn't work as it only yielded one book. The same search found no results on google, so I'm not surprised it doesn't work here either.

Unfortunately, many  bookseller sites do not include number of pages in their listings.  But, for all the errors in their listings, Amazon is one of the best for # of pages and book dimensions.   There are literally thousands (probably 10's of thousands) of listings here at PBS without page number data. 

Google search will show 'books over 700 pages', but it's NOT helpful as it lists books that mention 700 of anything! E.G. a book about Glen Canyon Dam which is 700 ft tall - but only 128 pages...

Btw, you don't have to join GoodReads to search their listings, and as Val mentioned, it appears that their "Popular Over 700 Pages Books" is just what it claims.
