In December we ran a series of best–of–the–year posts in which the library’s materials selectors shared with you the most notable and critically acclaimed books and media of the year, along with our blog contributors’ favorite reads.
Now it’s time to share some of your own favorites with you.
Click on the categories below to see which books published in 2011 have been most popular among Everett Public Library users. The links will run real-time searches in the library catalog, retrieving those titles that have been most frequently checked out or placed on hold over the past 120 days. These search statements and algorithms are a little fuzzy, but overall they’ll give you a good idea of which adult books have been most popular.
