2012 The Long Tail – Memorable Books on DorothyL
Of the 1628 titles listed as memorable reads, 1131 (69%) were unique, meaning that only 31% of the book titles that were submitted were also submitted by someone else. Most of us read (and like) very different books, as the long tail suggests.
I was curious about how many times a book title was cited (by quantity), so I did some counts. In the table below, the first column is the quantity of cites a given book received, the second column is the number of times that quantity was cited, e.g. The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny had 19 citations as a memorable book and a book with 19 citations occurred only once versus 910 times a memorable book was cited once.
