Okay, so this feature is fairly new, and it only works on some books, and it is quite surprising. Concordance will show you what the 100 most common words are, and the sizes are how much they are used. Text stats show you readabilty,and other things such as how many words, characters and sentences there is. Check it out: You might be surprised in finding that a lot of books have more/less words than you think!

Kenzie | 2838 comments Really?! That book is SO long. Sheesh.


message 21: by Seth, The plan is simple--stay alive. (new)

Seth (ninjaaaaaofwritingbooks) | 2205 comments Mod
its bcuz of her 1.5 spacing


message 22: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Well, it SEEMS really long, anyway. Maybe it's just 'cause I spent most of the book mad at Stephenie for making Edward leave. *sigh*

Seth (ninjaaaaaofwritingbooks) | 2205 comments Mod
they don't have it for BD


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Ah well. Still, it makes me wonder . . . But the most used words that was funny. Edward and Jacob were the big ones. XD


message 28: by Seth, The plan is simple--stay alive. (new)

Seth (ninjaaaaaofwritingbooks) | 2205 comments Mod
yeah, that means how many times they were used. the bigger the moreused.


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

message 30: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller lolz


message 31: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Well, I wouldn't think it would be. Written in first person and all there's not many times she needs to use it.


message 32: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller true,


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah, but the other charries in the book call her Bella a lot.


message 34: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller not as much, she does a lot of "thinking"


message 35: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Hmmm ... yeah. I just did a check on my book, and I've already used Daniel 45 times. LOL


message 36: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments That's my way of saying, my hypothesis was incorrect.
