How many words?
How long is the average novel or compilation today? How much is not enough? (Words and pages)
Re: How many words?
People deal in words, Rusty. Not everyone agrees on the length, but in general, a novel must be at least 60,000 words. Some publishers want more. Thrillers, for instance, generally come in at 100,000 words.
Again, don't worry about page count. If you use a word processor, it will tell you how many words your novel has. Since your manuscript for either fiction or non-fiction must be double-spaced, the page count of the manuscript is irrelevant.
