About Reddit Reads

The Data

Books are found in reddit comments by looking for links to Amazon, Goodreads, and a few smaller sites. It's too tricky to parse titles in an unbiased way.

When a user mentioned the same book multiple times in the same subreddit, I only counted the top-voted comment. I tried my best to combine cases where the same book was posted with slightly different titles or editions.

Actually, there was heaps of data cleaning stuff I had to do. If this is the sort of thing that interests you, maybe subscribe to the newsletter, I'll write a post about it some time.
