2015 The Long Tail - Memorable Books on DorothyL
Of the 1375 titles listed as memorable reads, 1041 (80%) were unique, meaning that 20% of the book titles submitted were also submitted by someone else. This is more unique books than last year proving that 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 Nature of the Beast by Louise Penny had 18 citations as a memorable book and a book with 18 citations occurred only once on the list versus 871 times a memorable book was cited once.
