Useless Statistics

The point of this thread is useless statistics. Well, and to maybe find some new books and authors to read.

I was looking through my list of books read this year on GoodReads and just love all the statistics available. So show me what you've read this year and how popular/unpopular it is. I'll go first as an example:

Popular - most ratings:
Twain, Mark - The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (565,982)
Huxley, Aldous - Brave New World (395,044)
Zusak, Markus - The Book Thief (199,383)
Palahniuk, Chuck - Fight Club (105,128)
Gaiman, Neil - Neverwhere (79,935)

Unpopular - fewest ratings:
Tredinnick, Luke - Why Intranets Fail (And How to Fix Them) (1)
Resmini, Andrea - Pervasive Information Architecture (6)
Elkin, Stanley - Van Gogh's Room at Arles (43)
Galloway, Steven - Ascension (70)
Bidini, Dave - Tropic of Hockey (80)

Best book - highest average rating:
Resmini, Andrea - Pervasive Information Architecture (4.50) (5)
Zusak, Markus - The Book Thief (4.33) (4)
Pratchett, Terry - I Shall Wear Midnight (4.30) (4)
Pratchett, Terry - A Hat Full of Sky (4.23) (4)
Neufeld, Gordon - Hold on to Your Kids (4.20) (4)

Worst book - lowest average rating:
Taylor, Arlene G. - The Organization of Information (2.73) (2)
Tredinnick, Luke - Why Intranets Fail (And How to Fix Them) (3.00) (3)
Wells, H.G. - In the Days of the Comet (3.24) (?)
Elkin, Stanley - Van Gogh's Room at Arles (3.33) (3)
Yu, Charles - How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe (3.34) (5)

I put my ratings in the second set of brackets for comparison purposes.
