More Cool Amazon Tools

by F.

I’ve mentioned before that Amazon provides a “concordance” for many books—basically, a table of word frequencies, though a lot of noise words are filtered out (words like “the,” “a,” “to” and so on).

Now they’ve added an even cooler feature: book stats like Flesch Index and Fog Index, as well as word count. So cool! If these things don’t mean anything to you, check out this example. Explanations can be found under the “learn more” links.
