Statistics

Okay, I’ll admit it. I have an obsession with book statistics. I also happen to know that a lot of people out there are curious about book statistics. How long did it take your favorite author to write that book? How long is the book? What other interesting tidbits can I gleam about their writing process?

Feeling curious? Have no fear! My statistics are here!
