Last year, I started keeping an Excel spreadsheet of our reviews after seeing a post about it from Lauren at Lose Time Reading during Bloggiesta . At the end of 2013, I pulled some of our stats and put them into an infographic to see how we've been reading and what trends we may have fallen into.
I found a few of these stats surprising. Of the big six (er five ?) publishers I thought we read a lot of was Hachette/Little Brown, but apparently we leaned more towards Simon and Schuster. Our diversity numbers were higher than I would have predicted, but I'd like to work on bringing them up even more.
Did you keep any 2013 stats ? What were yours like ? I'm so curious about these things !
