Title: Word count
Post by: orchardka on November 20, 2018, 11:30 AM
Hi all,

Is there a website other than arbookfind.com where I might be able to find word counts of books? Some of the books I'm looking for (newer titles) are not listed on the site.

Thanks!

Kiley

The number of pages can give you a good approximation if it's a novel. You can check those on Amazon.

I use https://www.perma-bound.com/

It is very current and you get word count and reading level.

Just type the book title or author into the search box in the top right. Click on the appropriate title. Then choose the Reading Information tab.
