Most of the time, I don’t share how I rank books with my students. I do this for the same reason that I don’t review books: because I want them to form their own opinions. Do I get jump up and down excited about some books? Yeah. I won’t lie.
But I found this when I was poking around in Goodreads today, and thought I would share. When I posted the picture to Google+ earlier, it bore a caption that said something along the lines of: “There were too many books I didn’t rate in 2012. I’ll have to do better this year.” And apparently I read a lot of books with a designation “other,” and a lot of action/adventure. Let’s see if, as a result of the #bookgapchallenge (here’s my video), I can’t manage to round those statistics out a little bit.
