If you’ve been looking for a way to make money online, or if you are a budding author, probably have been considering writing and selling books. However, as this is fairly new to you, you have some questions. It is perfectly normal. One of the most common questions is how many pages the average book?
There really is no hard and fast answer to this question. A lot of it depends on what the eBook is about. However, there are some general guidelines that will be able to help you determine the ideal length ebook
main, overriding rule for what book is this :. Total number of pages should be exactly as many as it takes to make your point; nothing more, nothing less. In other words, just write it, and let the material dictate how many pages it is. This will automatically make your eBook better than if you put a random number of pages and try to make your words fit into it.
How much you want to charge for your eBook could be a factor, but it is not important. That being said, the more expensive books at more sites, but there are always exceptions.
So, as you can see there is no one answer to the “how many pages the average book?” So long as you fully understand the point, here are some rough numbers to give you a general idea of what most readers will expect.
brief report covering one idea may be only 4 or 5 p. These are often released as free or low-cost reports (though they are still in eBook format). They usually not a lot of detail, but they still have something to offer.
good overview of the subject would be about 20 pages. You’re going into more detail here, but you’re probably not going to branch out a lot of the main topics.
A very in-depth look at one topic, covering many angles could be anywhere from 20 pages to 300 pages. These are the kinds of eBooks that are meant to be exhaustive. A reader to buy such a book would expect to learn as much as possible on the subject.
It should be noted that we are only talking about the number of pages of text. If you have a title page, table legs and images, the page count will go up. But do not use them as a cheap way of padding page count either. Only then, if they add value to the book.
