Goodreads Did Really Well in 2012


Goodreads has an end-of-the-year infographic that can only be described as nifty.

Visually represented stats range from the book with the most popular quote of 2012 (The Fault in Our Stars by John Green) to the year’s largest Goodreads group (“Felicia Day’s Vaginal Fantasy”).

Perhaps more shocking than whatever kind of fantasy Felicia Day is currently having is that the site reports doubling in size (from 6.5 million to 13 million users) in the past twelve months.
