04.27.11 - The making and publishing of my book (Part 2) - Counting the pages

It's not that easy figuring out how many pages my book should have. I need to follow some golden rules:
- 1 blank page (first and last pages)
- 4 end pages
- Title page
- © page

- The total number of pages should be an amount that can be divided by 8!

With this in mind, I started measuring and counting the pages of my favourite children's books to see how they were made. After careful consideration I have come to the conclusion that mine should be as following:
- size: 170mm x 180mm or 170mm x 170mm (to be decided later)
- number of pages: 40
