Yeah, I'm late with my Pakistan book (it's a good read, though!). So to pass the time, I decided I'd make some charts to look at how imbalanced my literary consumption is... by date of publication!

As you can see, there's a whole load of international books that have made their name during the 2000s, followed by the '80s and the '60s (no idea why there's this drop-off in the '90s and the '70s).

It's even more obvious when you look at it as a pie chart. Pretty much a third of my books have been written in the 2000s. And that's not even counting A Case of Exploding Mangoes yet.

I'll do the charts on gender and genre and foreign perspectives some other time.
