Thank you! Would Alanis say that it was ironic I hadn't read that?

For library books, I use two locations for word counts: https://www.bookshout.com/ or http://www.arbookfind.com/ (select parent and then search)

Neither is perfect but they work.
Yes, thanks for replying on this.

I use the Calibre plugin and bookshout or sometimes http://www.wordcounters.com/ to determine word counts. This uses an algorithm to estimate the word count so I prefer another method where possible.

Right, Readinglength.com also give a word count but it just uses 255 words/page instead of actually counting them (or at leasst pseudo counting them.)

Just finished the first of my (mostly) non-English books for my 2019 challenge, and gave it 4 stars on Goodreads:
This book was EXACTLY what it said on the cover: "An INTRODUCTION to Urdu poetry" For that reason, I give it 4/5 and a strong recommendation
...The point of the book is to INTRODUCE Urdu poetry to those who know little or nothing of it (like me), and it does a great job. Especially with all the links to online resources - recitals, videos, websites, translations, and more. The author goes out of his way to urge readers to treat his book as merely the start of their journey into the wonderland of Urdu poetry, and provides a plethora of pointers for furthering the traveller's trip, and makes the prospect VERY appealing.
... I urge anyone interested in poetry to read, listen, watch and learn.

Finished my 10th book of the year already! Getting a lot in mostly because I'm still more or less laid up. Still struggling on purchasing though I've still limited them to current series.
