Apex books of Goodreads

This is the same idea as my YouTube milestones project, applied to Goodreads. I compute a "Pareto frontier" of the apex books, based on average rating, number of ratings, and year of publication. I couldn't find a proper dataset, so I scraped some lists containing all books with at least 10,000 ratings. I was pleased with the results, which are a mix of classics and popular works.
