I'm interested in an way to determine the character count of the text of a ebook (epub, mobi, fb2) that is easier then converting it to plain text. A simple win32 utility or a site with drag and drop uploading would be optimal.

I have a low accept rate because I didn't get answers I could accept to most of the questions (e.g. the thing I want probably doesn't exist). By the way, is it really an issue? –  xxzoid Sep 27 '12 at 14:28

I have not tried this for PDF, (it works fine with .txt files) but what about an online tool? Such as http://felix-cat.com/tools/wordcount/

I want something similar, just for epub. –  xxzoid Sep 28 '12 at 17:18
