The 250 page book

Have you ever thought of the fact that just about every novel (except for the really odd one out) is about 250 pages. Why are they always 250 pages or so? Well, it seems that for a novel to be considered a "short novel", it has to have 80,000 words or less. Otherwise it gets categorized as a larger novel, and thus doesn't get the same dollars from publishers. Who ever knew there was a limit to the number of words!
