Novel/Book 20,000 words?

What would be a good estimate on how many pages of a novel/book is 20,000 words & 22 pages on Microsoft Word? Also, the font is very small? Please help if you can, Thanks

    Most novels have about 275 words per page. So you'd be looking about 72 pages.

    If what you really need to know is "How many words do I need to write before I've got enough for a novel, then the absolute minimum would be about 40,000 words, but in truth, very few publishers would accept a novel as short as that. For an adult novel, you should be aiming for 70,000 - 120,000 words. For young adult, around 60,000 words.

    So, how long do you think the novels are for Harlequin and digital editions?
