I don't know of a book that lists the reading level of individual words.
However, there is a tool for determining the reading level of a document
that is probably closer than you'd think: MS Word. Open your Word doc (or
import text into Word, if necessary) and select Grammar from the Tools
menu. Among the several things that the Grammar tool checks is the reading
level of the document. I use it less often than I probably should, but it's
nice to know that it's available.

Cheers!
