Does anyone have an entire word count for The Chronicles of Narnia? My kids want to know how it compares to Lord of the Rings (appx. 454,000 according to website). Just started the series over with them tonight! It's been two years and the youngest remembers little of it.

This is what I get from my electronic copy of the books.

Pages: 1,323
Words: 323,503
Characters (with spaces): 1,715,501
Paragraphs: 23,438

But I had to convert it to a text file before doing the count. If anything went wrong in the conversion, the counts might be off.

May I ask where your electronic copy came from? (is there a legal e-book now?)

Evidently there is. I found them on ebooks.com.

To find them all on "ebooks", I found I sometimes had to search by the specific name of the book, not just "Chronicles of Narnia". HHB and SC wouldn't come up any other way.
