Cloudy with a Chance of Books
Isn't that the coolest image? According to this item from eBooknewser, this image is "a word cloud made by gathering the various book polls and top 100 lists and then combining them. The work was done by David McCandless from the blog Information is Beautiful – a 'consensus-cloud' of most mentioned titles from various book polls and top 100 lists. As you can probably guess, the larger titles were on more lists."
I see many of my favorites distinctly and some emerging more slowly from the haze. A few I like are a bit less distinct, but I can still make them out.
Any thoughts? Are your favorites here? Any good ones missing? Anything that ought to be, um, precipitated? :)
