I find this stuff interesting, so if people are curious these are some books statistics:
Who are you?
There’s a very good chance you’re from one of the main English speaking countries, understandably. 55% of you are American, 12% are British, 6.5% Canadian and 5.4% Australian.
Our next is Germany, but I’m guessing that there’s a 5.1% chance you’re my long time reader anonymus :P
The rest of the world still represents a quite sizable 15% but chances are a lot of these are just views on the home page rather than readers (but maybe not!)
What have you read?
This graph illustrates really well how important you’re first chapter is! I think mine could be stronger, but I don’t want to go back and change it.
Only 20% of the readers get on to Chapter 2. We shed another half again in the next few with 12% of those reaching chapter 20. Overall, I can say that one in ten of the people who dipped in their toe started to read which I’m really quite happy with.
It also gives me a reasonable idea of how many readers I have. 200 or so! Hurah. This doesn’t count RRS or email reads too.
I updated the graph, It’s not approaching the 500 mark. (I’ve had nearly as many views in October as the whole 9 months before that)
I also split up the graph into two 30 day chunks (and the rest). Really good at illustrating how the people who are reading all the way through then start reading on each update – and everything adds together to become quite level.
