Sacramento Public Library

Most circulated books of 2013

1/9/2014
See what titles Sacramento Public Library patrons checked out the most last year.
 
At the beginning of the year, the Sacramento Bee asked what books patrons checked out the most in 2013. So we combed through the more than 2 million titles in our stacks and our fast-growing virtual collections to bring you the three lists below.
 
Our most popular book of the year was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn—though the Junie B. and Wimpy Kid series gave the femme fatale a run for her money, thanks to our voracious young readers.
