Fiction Best Sellers on Library Journal – Last week of May

The fifteen most borrowed books in US Libraries as of 31 May (fiction only). I find this list much more revealing than best sellers lists based on books ordered (not sold) by bookstores (e.g. NY Times Best Sellers List) or books sold by independent booksellers. Here, there is no money exchange, so reading does not depend on one’s ability to spend money on books.
