Hi there, I'm a man making a list. That's what men do when our wives go to bed, or so I tell myself. It's very normal
I'm not really making a list, the list already exists. It's the BBC's 'Big Read' top 200 thing that they did back in 2003. I'm just trying to re-arrange it in ascending order of wordcount.
Pointless, perhaps, but at least such an arrangement will mean Eric Carle's 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' can take it's rightful spot at #1 and in it's former position (#199) can go War and Peace.
So my plan is to find out the wordcounts for all these books. That's what I'm doing here, noising up the Discworld experts. Wondering if any of you fine people can help me out with the wordcount of the many Pratchett novels that are in the top 200.
The Colour of Magic
Men at Arms
Theif of Time
The Fifth Elephant
Any help, muchly appreciated.
