Amazon.com seems to have scanned in all of my new book Imaginary Biographies, so that when you search for stuff on the site it searches into books to give you results. For example, putting my name into Amazon gives you not only the books I wrote, but a few books in which I was quoted.
They have a new feature now called Text Stats, which has produced some probably true but odd statistics about Imaginary Biographies.
Cannot, death, fact, figure, god, lost, spirit, time, tradition, and tv are among the top 100 most used words.
The Flesch-Kincade index for readability (whatever that is) says that only 18% of books are harder to read than mine. Ok. Now is that all books throughout time in all languages? English books Amazon has scanned? Is this something I am choosing to care about today?
16% of the words I used are considered "complex" words, but, since only 44% of books have more that seems normal.
Only 13% of books have more words per sentence than Imaginary Biographies. Long sentences are a bad habit. I need to write shorter sentences.
The book has 613, 114 characters, and gives you 1147 words for every dollar you spend on it.
