I may be a bit behind the curve on this super cool infographic (perhaps you saw this around the new year), but it was so interesting that I just had to share it. In the past, I shared a list of the most read books in the past 50 years; below, you’ll find something slightly narrower in scope but also fascinating nonetheless, Facebook’s Most Read Books of 2012.
I was most surprised by The Great Gatsby’s appearance on the list. Although the source of this infographic doesn’t philosophize on why some books might be on the list, I wonder if Gatsby made it due to the publicity for the upcoming movie, English teachers hitting it a little more than normal, or just that the book is one of those that sticks.
Random.org gave me the gorgeously round number 575. This makes Tracy Cembor, with the number 500, the winner of Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Princess! Congrats Tracy! You can check out her blog over at tracycembor.com.
