Passport Book Number while completing DS-160

The form asks for my Passport Book Number, but I am not sure if I have one.

While all passports contain passport numbers, not all passports contain book numbers, so this question will only apply to citizens from some countries. If your country of citizenship or nationality does not issue passports with book numbers, you should select “Does not apply.” You may check with your country’s passport issuing office to verify whether or not your passport has a book number, separate from the passport number.
