Thanks for any light you can shed on this.
since the only place this data is displayed is on someones profile answering that question will be mostly opinion and guess work, and I would guess that they are about the same.
A higher Obscurity would be lower numbers, Mine is 16/432 so I am more obscure than you, however there are others who are much more obscure than me yet, BTRIPP I think is one.
My first book at 21 copies is Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide by Robert Michael Pyle. The only title at 388 copies is The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love by Oscar Hijuelos (a Pulitzer winner, but it is not high on my TBR list.)
I have 9 of the top 25 books (including 2 Harry Potters), and multiples of some very popular titles.
2 Huckleberry Finn (6241 copies in LT)
2 Alice in Wonderland (3574 copies)
3 Pilgrim’s Progress (2404 copies)
2 Uncle Tom’s Cabin (2014 copies)
2 Prelude to Foundation (1355 copies) - one is on the deaccession pile, so that should help
2 Silent Spring (833 copies) – one on the deaccession pile
2 Battle Cry of Freedom (815 copies)
I did cheat and list my LOTR as a 3-volume set, rather than the 3 individual volumes.
The mean (average) of 910 comes from adding up the number shared for each book, and dividing by the number of books. This number is affected mostly by the degree of popularity of your books, and less by the number of popular books. Removing HP and LOTR would definitely change this number.
The question is: what do you want your catalog to do? Some LT users find achieving obscurity to be so important, that they decide not to catalog their popular books. Other users want to list every last book, pamphlet, and map. And some use LT to find other users who share their particular span of interests.
EDIT: Following the reference to Troilus and Criseyde above, I've noticed that 60-odd people have a copy of Gower's Confessio Amantis, but my copy isn't included. I wonder if this and similar anomalies make my collection appear more obscure than it reallly is?
EDIT#2: I've used "combine/separate" to join my copy of Confessio Amantis to the others!
