2012 Princeton "bestsellers"
We are quickly approaching the end of 2012 and there is no shortage of best-books-of-the-year lists. I hope you will bear with me for a few more lists of the most popular books this past year at the Princeton Public Library. Below are four categories of the top 10 highest-circulating fiction, nonfiction, children's fiction, and children's nonfiction books.
Starting with fiction, I'm not surprised to see the list dominated by mysteries and suspense novels but I am happy to see one famous local author.
Nonfiction: I cannot tell you how popular the #1 title is here! This is obviously a town that loves to think about thinking.
3. The America's Test Kitchen menu cookbook : kitchen-tested menus for foolproof dinner parties : 51 menus for every occasion plus strategies that guarantee less stress and better food / by the editors at America's Test Kitchen.
...and for the kids, children's fiction:
....and finally, children's nonfiction. Note: comics and graphic novels are here because they are in the drawing and comics subject number of the Dewey Decimal System. I remember reading Garfield books as a kid. I'm a bit surprised how many of these books ended up in our top 10.
Thanks to everyone who checked out any of these books at the library. We will keep the library stocked with what you want to read in 2013!
