According to an Infographic, 300-page books have an 87 percent completion rate. Completion rates steadily drop the longer a book gets, with 700-word books only earning a 35 percent completion rate. The graphic also reveals that books that earned the most revenue cost an average of $3.99, while books that sell for $.99 are sold 12x as often as other titles.
