Hi! I'm wondering what is the usual word count of a quality light novel book. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance.

As of 2014, the longest title is 54 characters long, which is infact shorter than the contents inside the book by a good margin.probably shorter than the title itself
Um... gulp*Light novels dont really have a set length, here is an example that is probably close to the upper limit.
All 29 main volumes of Horizon in the middle of nowhere. This does not include any of the side stroy volumes. Here is the ongoing translation https://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/...no_Horizon_-_Kimitoasamade_by_Kawakami_Minoru
As you can see even the books of the same series are not of similar length everytime.
Then there are others like Toaru series, Problem children and dxd who are split into two series, a prequel and a sequel which result in absurd amount of books with almost all of the volumes close to the length of a normal book.
Check out this webpage too, and also the comments there for a better idea https://kuuderesshadow.wordpress.co...lume-count-with-volumes-out-in-the-past-year/
I cant verify this but I think the only ln beating Horizon by the page count is Guin saga with an absurd ~130 volumes
they really need to step up their own game at 2020 :DAs of 2014, the longest title is 54 characters long, which is infact shorter than the contents inside the book by a good margin.
Light novels have been ranked by plenty of criteria—the popularity of their anime adaptations, their sales figures—but Japanese media website...www.animenewsnetwork.com
