What reading level is The Country of Sir Walter Scott book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:


Coming out into Fleet Street, we should stand before the figure of a griffin on a high pedestal, which marks the site of Temple Bar. In Scott's time it was an arch crossing the street, and in the time of King James, merely a barricade of posts and chains. When the coro- nation procession passed this point, King George V, ac- cording to ancient custom, paused to receive permission from the Lord Mayor to enter the City of London. The civic sword was presented to the King and immediately returned
...to the Lord Mayor, after which the procession resumed its march.
Within Temple Bar and on the north side of Fleet Street, between Fetter Lane and Chancery Lane, is St. Dunstan's Church, built in 1832 on the site of an older church building. A few yards to the eastward, according to Scott, was the shop of David Ramsay, the watch- maker, before which the two 'stout-bodied and strong- voiced ' apprentices kept up the shouts of ' What d' ye lack? what d' ye lack? ' very much after the fashion of a modern 'barker.
