Ever wonder how many other people read the book you are checking out? This year, the Hunterdon County Library had 130 titles that were published in 2011 and went out more than 100 times each this year (books that were published in January had an edge over titles published later in the year). The top circulating title, Tick Tock by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge went out 553 times. James Patterson and his co-authors top the list with five titles, holding the number one, two and three positions. Rounding out the top ten list are Jodi Picoult, Janet Evanovich, Mary Higgins Clark, Harlan Coben, Jonathan Kellerman and Maeve Binchy. Author number twelve is Robert B. Parker who died in January 2010 (Sixkill was the last Spenser novel he wrote). Two debut authors appear on the list, Eleanor Brown's The Weird Sisters number 41 and S.J.Watson’s Before I Go to Sleep came in at number 76. Perennial favorite children’s author Mary Pope Osborne appeared on the list at number 80 with A Crazy Day with Cobras. Did your favorite make the top 10? Thanks for another great year. See you in 2012 for more great books!
