What are We Reading?

Australia’s most borrowed library books 

Have you ever wondered what the most popular books are in Australian Libraries? The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) & Civica Libraries Index publish an annual list of the most borrowed books from the previous 12 months.

We certainly like our crime and thriller novels. They make up the top 10 spots in the 2017 list, and account for 15 of the top 20 books borrowed. At number one is Make Me by Lee Child, followed by The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins and Personal, also by Lee Child.

Topping the list of Australian titles this year was Rain Music by Di Morrissey, followed by Spirits of the Ghan by Judy Nunn and Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty.

Non-fiction honours went to Reckoning by Magda Szubanski, then The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and The Road to Little Dribbling: More Notes From a Small Island by Bill Bryson.

Find the full list on the ALIA website.
