E-book Page Count vs. Paperback Page Count

I've noticed lately that the page counts for my Nook e-books very different from the page counts Barnes & Noble and other sites have for the paperback versions. For example, the Plagues of Night E-book has 334 pages, while the ppb has 400 pages, the first Kate Daniels book, Magic Bites, has 205pg in E-book, and the ppb has 272. By far the biggest difference I have come across is the first Wheel of Time novel, Eye of the World, has 2068 pages on my Nook, and 752 pages in ppb. Does anyone know why this is the case? The EotW one seems really weird since it is 2.75 times longer, instead of the others which are all shorter.
