INFOGRAPHIC: Word Counts of Famous Books
“If you liked Electric Literature‘s Game of Books infographic that compared the length of A Song of Ice and Fire to classic novels, you might enjoy this infographic (source) that lays out the length of some famous novels, poems, and plays from literary history.”
Amazon used to have a feature that showed word counts, unusual phrases and other statistics about each book. Not sure why they took it away because it was fun.
This infographic isn’t the best things since sliced bread, but–like many of those lists we see on Flavorwire–it’s an amusing diversion.
