The Data Behind My Ideal Bookshelf

Each of the 101 contributors Thessaly interviewed picked as many books as they thought represented their ideal bookshelf, and I knew some of them would pick identical books.

So what would a taste graph linking contributors to each other using the books on their shelves look like?
Previously, I had worked with Cytoscape to render a network graphs, but this seemed like a good opportunity to make something interactive and also a perfect first project to really use d3. I can’t wait to do more with it.
