As faithful readers of this blog might know by now, I love lists. Because my specialty is collection development, I am always curious about what people want to read, watch, and listen to, so I have compiled various lists based on the circulation of books, DVDs, and CDs at the library. Two lists I have yet to create (until now): the all-time most popular suspense and fiction books at the Princeton Public Library. Let's get to it! (Insert drum roll here.)
The ten most popular suspenseful books of all time at the library are:
…and the last on the list an early entry in a long-running series:
And now for the top ten fiction titles at the library:
1. Kingsolver, Barbara. Homeland and Other Stories (Note: This is a bit surprising since story collections usually don't circulate as well as novels here.)
5. Card, Orson Scott. Xenocide (Note: Surprising because Ender's Game is his most well known novel.)
Please feel free to check out and read any of these twenty very popular titles and let us know what you think of them. You can add reviews and comments in our catalog or join us at The PPL Buzz on Facebook. Happy reading, everyone!
