The pandemic has provided a great opportunity to sit at home and read without having to make excuses for why you don't want to attend someone's party. Looking for your next book? Look no further! In this challenge you'll create a reading recommendation report based on the books on the New York Times Best Sellers List from 2011- 2018.

 

Create a report with a bar graph displaying the top 10 authors based on the total number of weeks they were on the list, along with the number of books they had on the list (when a book has more than 1 author count each author separately). Then create a table with the top book for each year.

Fun challenge. Pay attention to the author field! I rendered the report as a PDF... not sure why the header and footer aren't showing there. They appear when viewing in Designer.

I think the output provided could use a little love... or more specifically a render or a layout tool to put it all together...

 

I almost overcomplicated this one but it proved pretty straightforward!
