The graph below shows the number of books read by men and women at Burnaby Public Library from 2011 to 2014.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Sample Answer

The graph shows us the number of books read at the Burnaby Public Library by men and women during the four years of 2011 to 2014.

As the graph shows us, there is a reasonable difference between the men and women, with the number of books read by men on a steady increase during this period, while the number of books read by women was on the rise till 2013, after which it was on a decline.

The number of books read by men increased from about 3000 in 2011 to 4000 in 2012, then 10,000 in 2013, and then all the way to 14,000 in 2014, which was the highest figure between the two in that period.

This period started though, with women reading more books than men with the number starting around 5000 in 2011 and increased to 8000 books in 2012, and then rose to 10,000 books in 2013. However, post-2013, the numbers fell back to 8000 again.

Overall, the number of books read by men have been on a steady increase during this period from 3000 to 14,000, while more books were read by women in the starting of this period at around 5000 and the numbers increased till 2013, but then dropped down below the numbers of men to 8000 in 2014.
