2013 Bedford Book Report

As an avid reader and former librarian, I’m a little obsessive about keeping track of what I read and when I read it. With data collected via the website Goodreads, I created a visual representation of my year in books for 2013. The circle represents all of the books read with each outer wedge representing one book, the size of the wedge based on the number of pages with relation to the overall page count for the year, 19,117 pages. It’s color refers to the book’s genre. The book key includes both author and rating information. At the bottom is a timeline complete with number of pages read each month annotated by life events that describe why there was a fluctuation in how much I was reading.
