Best Books of 2010 on DorothyL
From December through February, readers of DorothyL listserv posted their favourite books read for the first time during 2010 to the DorothyL list.
Our Volunteer Distributor read all DL posts and forwarded relevant emails to our Volunteer Processors, each of whom copied, cleaned and pasted data from those emails into an Excel spreadsheet which they then forwarded to me. I did some more data cleansing, and then sent out a cry to the list for Data Verification Volunteers to check copyright dates and titles of books which had been submitted.
A great deal of the research was done using Stop You're Killing Me (an exceptional resource for mystery buffs), Fantastic Fiction, WorldCat library catalogue and other online sites. From the final data, I created pivot tables which produced the information included in the attached reports. Many thanks to 2010 Volunteers for their help and here's how you can thank them.
