Today's Tuesday Thinger Question(s): What's the most popular book in your library? Have you read it? What did you think? How many users have it? What's the most popular book you don't have? How does a book's popularity figure into your decisions about what to read?
The most popular book in my library is The Davinci Code with 23,291 members listing this in their libraries. I read it after much convincing by a co-worker a few years ago and thought it was ok. To be honest, I don't know what all of the hype was about. I have not seen the movie so I have no idea how it compares.
The most popular book that I don't have is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with 32,518 members listing this in their libraries. I have never read any of the Harry Potter books. They are something that I would like to read I just have never gotten around to it. Some of my friends had reading parties when the last book was released. They literally sat around to read and eat with friends. I have to admit I felt a little left out but oh well!
I have read some popular titles such as The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns but read those long before all of the hoopla. I also read The Alchemist based on friends recommendations and hated it. I am not opposed to reading popular titles if they happen to peak my interest. Lately, my book club selections seem to be the most popular fiction that I am reading.
