All the books I’ve read before

Why get out of bed when you can read about people who got out of bed? This pretty much sums up my past weeks, so I decided to make a visualization from an idea that has spent a long time on my to-do list. I put together a database from all the books I’ve read since 2009 (the year I started using moly) and it turned out that the 278 titles almost add up to 100 000 pages. I decided to use chart types that I haven’t played with before, that’s how the Sankey diagram, the Waffle and the Lollipop charts made it to the canvas in Tableau. For the map, I used a custom Mapbox template to visualize the distribution of authors by birthplace. Reading is sexy so grab a book, but before you do, check out my dataviz on Tableau Public.
