Hugos and Retro Hugos: GoodReads / LibraryThing stats

I was able to prepare this a couple of days ahead of time, so the numbers may have shifted in the interim. As usual, I have ranked by descending order of GoodReads users who have rated each of the nominated books.
WoT 1: The Eye of the World, by Robert Jordan138,0474.1510,0284.04
WoT 2: The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan113,9654.168,1093.99

Parasite, by Mira Grant3,1343.692883.85
Ancillary Justice, by Anne Leckie3,1003.983864.08
Warbound, by Larry Correia1,3534.45444.38
Neptune's Brood, by Charles Stross9973.741773.78

Obviously a somewhat unusual situation, with one of the nominees consisting of 15 separate volumes with almost 12,000 pages published over a period of 22 years.

Anyway, in for a penny, in for a pound: here are the equivalent rankings for the Retro Hugo nominees for Best Novel of 1939.
Out Of The Silent Planet, by C.S. Lewis35,4063.906,0733.85
The Sword In The Stone, by T.H. White10,7483.921,6523.95
Galactic Patrol, by E.E. "Doc" Smith1,8653.958493.54
Carson of Venus, by Edgar Rice Burroughs6573.673633.32
The Legion of Time, by Jack Williamson273.33823.30
I am surprised that Sword in the Stone is so far behind Out of the Silent Planet. I guess it's been some time since the Disney film...
