The 10 Most Read Books in the Leisure Reading Collection

By Scott West

I was recently looking at usage numbers for the Leisure Reading Collection and was able to determine which books circulate the most. The top 10 books are:

1. The Killing Joke - Alan Moore et al.
2. Bossypants -- Tina Fey
3. The Audacity of Hope -- Barack Obama
4. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? -- Mindy Kaling
5. The Fault in Our Stars -- John Green
6. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian -- Sherman Alexie
7. Unbroken -- Laura Hillenbrand
8. God is Not Great -- Christopher Hitchens
9. The 4-Hour Workweek -- Timothy Ferriss
10. Wonder -- RJ Palacio

Quite an eclectic selection. How many have you read? Tell us @roeschlibrary.
