Tuesday Thingers: I want to be Popular!

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

Okay, I must admit that the Wicked song Popular immediately jumped into my head. I need to buy that CD for me and my kids - I think we'd all enjoy it. May even be a reason to go back to Chicago to see the show!

Anyway!

I think we've answered this question before, but the most popular book in my LibraryThing library is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1 of the series). And, yes, I've read it. More than once, even. My entire family has read it. Well, my boy has only made it halfway through, I think. But he's seen the movie - does that count? LOL

I imagine this book will be tops for alot of Tuesday Thingers this week as it's so popular. 37,389 libraries in LT have it included with 363 reviews. In fact the entire series is the tops for my library.

The next 'most popular' book in my library is The Kite Runner. I definitely recommend that book - great writing, excellent story and you will learn and grow from it.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you sign up for my 200th Post Celebration Giveaway!

We have the HP books, but I've never put them in my LT library. I vote for going back to Chicago to see the show again then buying the CD.

Yes - the HP books seem to be the favorite of the day - I've got them, but haven't read them. Loved the movies though!

Here's my Thinger!

The Kite Runner was one of the three books in the top 25 that I didn't have.

I'm not on Thingers, but the first book that popped into my mind in my own personal library is To Kill a Mockingbird. I just LOVE that book. And every time I read it, I get something new out of it. It's just such a timeless classic.
