2013 The Long Tail - Memorable Books on DorothyL
Of the 1784 titles listed as memorable reads, 1183 (66%) were unique, meaning that only 34% 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've repeated the analysis done last year to determine how many times a book title was cited (by quantity). 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. How The Light Gets In by Louise Penny had 36 citations as a memorable book and a book with 36 citations occurred only once on the list versus 946 times a memorable book was cited once.
