Amazing Data Cloud of *Books Everyone Should Read*

The people at Information is Beautiful have compiled lists of the greatest novels of all time from various sources (Pulitzer and Booker Prize winners, most frequently borrowed books from British libraries, public polling at Amazon and Goodreads, among others) and have created an impressive data cloud marking the frequency with which the most commonly checked titles appear. According to their research, the book of all books is To Kill a Mockingbird (grade nine core text). To see the entire cloud, click on the thumbnail below, and if you are feeling ambitious, count up how many YOU have read! (And if the number is lower than you’d like it to be, well then, here’s a phenomenal reading list). Enjoy!
