Maybe not thaaat unique, as bestsellers exist bcos lots of people read the same thing (and sometimes over and over again!). Anyway, this is not about bestseller-bashing, but more about what people like to read.
Some folks who left comments also told us what they liked about the collections at the library@orchard. Verena said the library provided her with a dose of “fiction, travel guides and lots of dog magazines”. Another person sought out bridal magazines as well as travel guides. And someone even said we “re-ignited my passion for reading fiction”… yay us!
SN got her fix of “chick lit and trashy novels”, and methinks trashy novels are cathartic and an impt element of reading for pleasure, so diss them not! Ivan recently had a brain workout reading Adbusters and More than Pixels remembers doing photography research here.
Oh oh, and there’s definitely a whole lotta ppl who read manga and graphic novels!
So what do you like to read, and btw did you know that you can recommend titles for acquisition?
I’m currently reading the Harry Potter series, am now on Book 2, The Chamber of Secrets. I know… that’s like one millenium behind everyone else. Bah.
