Not all books are read the same way.

For Japanese literature (for example), page 1 would be on the left ( Japanese literature books -and many manga- are read 'backwards' compared to English / French / ... books, they are usually RTL).

I'm not sure what the situation is for South Asian & Arabic books. But given the many rtl languages there, I'm sure there are variations on which side page 1 is.
