very cool feature. however, do NOT believe the grade level numbers ever. google's using the correct formula but the formula is severely flawed. Here are some of the more challenging texts i could think of which i could get the full texts of online. compare and be appalled by this ridiculous formula

wikipedia entry on Harry Potter: Grade level: 9.04
Nietzsche: Beyond Good and Evil. 7.52
Kant: Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysic of Morals: 7.82
Hume: An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals: 8.56
Einstein: Relativity : the Special and General Theory: 7.59
