Book Scraper

Bookninja posted recently about a nifty new tool to analyze the classics that’s up at TimesOnline. It’s called Book Scraper, and you can use it to search in and compare 126 books. It’s very fun, and provides a bunch of utterly useless but fascinating information. For instance, select Romeo and Juliet versus Andersen’s Fairy Tales, and you’ll find out that 43% of the vocabulary in R&J is used in AFT, or that the longest word in R&J is “unthankfulness”.

    I’m glad you posted this; I was having trouble finding anything interesting to do on the internet.

    Little internet addiction humor for you there.
