return textWordCount(stripped)
averageWordsPerMinute = 350
# Count the words in each message body
emails['WordCount'] = emails.apply(wordCount, axis=1)
emails['MinutesToRead'] = emails['WordCount'] / averageWordsPerMinute
# Get total number of minutes required to read all these emails
totalMinutes = emails['MinutesToRead'].sum()
# And convert that to a more human-readable timespan
timeToRead = humanfriendly.format_timespan(totalMinutes * 60)
