In addition, the company shared the ten most popular books published in 2013 on the site. We’ve included that infographic above. Founder Otis Chandler posted a note to members today, sharing some eye-popping statistics about the social network for readers:

We now have 20 million members, up from 10 million members just eleven months ago … Your love of reading shines through everywhere on Goodreads, from group discussions to ratings and reviews to reading updates. You’ve written more than 25 million reviews and added more than 620 million books.
