So how well did the retrieval on the group zeitgeist work for you? I have eight out of the first ten most characteristic works, and own all of the first ten most-held works (but since that's all seven Harry Potters plus The Hobbit, Pride and Prejudice, and The Complete Works of Shakespeare that's not saying much. :-)

In the full list of most characteristic works, (which says see all 105 but only gives you 85) I have 59 titles. I have 78 of the 100 most-held titles.

Seems like the most characteristic list runs strongly but not exclusively to non-fiction, while the most-held list is very strongly running to fiction.

As soon as I can see the full list, I will post full stats. There is some funny bug there

From the 10, I have 7 (and I need to add a few of them in LT...)

It's kinda strange that the top book is Arbella though -- I would have expected some of the biographies or even a Tudors book. On the other hand... if they are not interested in Elizabeth or in obscure English non-queens, people probably had never heard of her... or would have wanted to read a book about here.

It is an interesting fact though.

I didn't know of this feature until now! And am I a little embarressed to admit that of the top 86 that are shown, I own 60! I have 6 of the top 10.

Why embarrassed? :)
