2014 The Long Tail - Memorable Books on DorothyL
Of the 1108 titles listed as memorable reads, 851 (77%) were unique, meaning that only 23% 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 analysed 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. The Long Way Home by Louise Penny had 17 citations as a memorable book and a book with 17 citations occurred only once on the list versus 723 times a memorable book was cited once.
