There are dozens of books translated to movies every
year. This visualization takes a look the rank of books from the Modern Library data set as it relates to the number of movies that have been made from those books (and the length of the books). Additionally, I’ve categorized the books based on the following criteria:
• Have I read it?
• Have I seen it?
• Have I read and seen it?
• None of the above
As you can see, not only am I not as well read as I’d like to be, I’m not nearly the movie watcher I thought I was. Another revelation: there are no books from the set that I’ve read but haven’t also seen a film version of.
