About Word Count

In this new age of e-publishing, page count has become obsolete. At Underground Book Reviews, we calculate the length of a book by its word count, which the literary industry has done for ages. If you're unfamiliar with this method, check out some classics to get your bearing:

60-80k: Catcher in the Rye & The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
