A great plugin for a blog or story site

Ease of use

Works like a charm. Just exclude some categories (if preferred) and there it goes.

I used this to: A story site. That's why I would like an addition to the plugin.
Right now it outputs "Reading time: x to x minutes" An output like: "Word count: xx | Reading time x to x minutes' would be superb.

Simply works

The power of simplicity: it just does what's promised. Nice addition for a blog or news site. Would love to see it upgraded for 3.x :).

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your great feedback!! I have just updated it for Joomla! 3.3 as some other users also requested it.
