Word Count

I learned something new today.  Did you know Amazon has a function that gives a word count for each book?  I get excited over little things like this, and now can move things along a little faster.  

In case you were wondering - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass has 57,345 words.   (one of my current reads)

How to find a book’s word count: Go to that book’s page and scroll down to “Inside This Book.” Under that heading, click “Text Stats.” (It’ll be a blue link.) A new window will pop up. Under “Number of,” you’ll see “words.” That’s your number!

One hour later…
In further exploration, the word counts are not available for some of my books.  I did though find another useful site.
