Tuesday Thingers!

What's the most popular book in your library? Have you read it? What did you think? How many users have it?

Well like a lot of you, my most popular book is the 1st Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! The cover pictured is the 10th Anniversary edition. Yes I did read it and liked it. Though, I like several of the later books in the series more. And I actually started reading them after I saw the first movie! It gave me the final push I needed to read them (I owned them but hadn't read them) 37,402 users have this book on Librarything.com! That's a lot of books!

What's your most popular book according to Librarything? 

P.S. Is it just me or is everywhere you look someone reading one of the books from the Twilight series. In the past week I've probably seen 4 different people reading them on the bus!

  3. My mom is reading the first Twilight book, her friend is reading the second Twilight book, and about 10 of the girls in my class are currently reading one of the Twilight books...I personally think that they can find better books to read than Twilight.

  4. That was really interesting. My most popular turned out to be The Great Gatsby.

    I also had a couple of books no one else had, like The Sky is Red by Giuseppe Berto.

  6. Mine's also Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

    As for Twilight, all of a sudden my non bookish friends are reading it. It's strange but very cool.

  9. You're talking about the ones with the movie cast, right? Seems like that's what everyone's reading at my school.

  10. I see Twilight everywhere too - especially on the bus. I have to restrain myself from going up to the stranger - always a woman - and saying, "don't you just LOVE it!"

  11. Ms. Bookish- I hope you try out Twilight, it's a good time!

    Liv- I know! It's pretty funny!

    Zoealea- Hahaha! I think sometimes people just want to see what the hype is all about!

    After The Blackbird Sings- The Great Gatsby happens to be one of my favorite books!

    Wendi B- Hehe!

    Court- I know! I just bought it for my friend for Christmas because she expressed interest in it. I can't wait to see what she thinks! At this point I wouldn't be surprised if my grandmother started reading it!

    bermudaonion- My little sister has that book!

    Veens- :)

    Gabbi- I'm talking about any and all versions of the book, they are everywhere!

    A.- You are right, especially on the bus! Haha- I do go up to the people reading it, you are right, always women. One lady I talked to started with Twilight a bit back and only has Breaking Dawn left! Another person was reading it at the stop and so was i, so i held it up and smiled and she looked at me like "LOSER!" but she was reading it too!
