From BU Today:
Libraries have been churning out top-10 lists of their most popular books of late. The occasion can be an annual look back at the previous year’s hot reads, as with the Boston Public Library, or in the New York Public Library’s case, a blowing-out-the-birthday-candles on its 125th anniversary.
This got BU Today wondering: what are the most popular books borrowed from BU Libraries?
The article continues with several caveats about the lists [as one would expect]. We also learn some facts about the final lists:
The most popular traditional books all have had fewer than 100 borrowings since 2013, when the library system inaugurated new software that keeps such records. The most popular e-books have fewer than 200 views.
