When you escape.

I lis­te­ned to this while wri­ting this post, try it while you read :o)

Since the inter­net is still bro­ken, I’ll be hap­py to conti­nue my lite­ra­ry streak. :o) Let’s go. I was tel­ling you that I had chan­ged my method of expan­ding my libra­ry, and here’s what I did.

First of all, I was without a doubt ins­pi­red by other search engines. My goal was to find the main flow of my rea­dings. Let me explain. Taking my first three books, I wrote down their biblio­gra­phy, foot­notes and refe­rences found within the text. This gave me a table of about 1500 works. Some were sim­ply present in the biblio­gra­phy, others cited within the text with or without footnotes.

I then assi­gned a weigh­ting to each refe­rence. Posi­tive if cited in the text, neu­tral if present only in the biblio­gra­phy, nega­tive if it was a work of the author or co-author of the book. I then increa­sed the value of the refe­rences as fol­lows. The more an author cited a varie­ty of sources, the more valuable the most cited sources were. On the contra­ry, if an author cited only 3 sources, for example, even if they cited them 100 times each, the value of these three sources was low, pena­li­sed by the lack of diversity.
