2016 The Long Tail - Memorable Books on DorothyL
Of the 1603 titles listed as memorable reads, 1158 (72%) were unique, meaning that 28% of the book titles submitted were also submitted by someone else. This is a lower percentage than last year, but it's still high, proving that most of us read (and like) very different books, as the long tail suggests. Funny how we're all so interested in recommendations from other DLers!
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. A Great Reckoning by Louise Penny had 29 citations as a memorable book and a book with 29 citations occurred only once on the list versus 940 times a memorable book was cited once.
