Reader Contributed AWPS

Alan Oathout, who started this whole AWPS thing, contributed these and I thought I'd post them. He used 200 sentences pulled from random places at the back, middle, and front of the books. Sounds even more acceptable than my numbers. Range was the longest and shortest sentence he counted.

Remember we're just posting numbers right now. We're not drawing conclusions yet.

Master & Commander by Patrick O'Brian - AWPS: 20.1 (range 1-99)
Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins - AWPS: 10.16 (range 1-30)
Cape Refuge by Terri Blackstock - AWPS: 10.3 (range 1-48)
Vanished by Alton Gansky - AWPS: 9.12 (range 1-29)
True Devotion by Dee Henderson - AWPS 10.51 (range 1-38)
At Home In Mitford by Jan Karon - AWPS: 12.86 (range 1-56)
