100 Most Borrowed Kids Fiction Books of 2013

So we counted up all the loans of all the Junior Fiction collection and here we have the 100 most popular books of 2013 as borrowed by you! (We gave the picture books and the comics/graphic novels their own lists so check them out as well)

The ugly truth is Wimpy Kid
again takes out the top
four places

It will come as no surprise to those of you who remember the 2012 list, that the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series hogs the top four places on the list once again. This year books 5, 6, 7, and 3 from the series fill the top four spots, with the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book coming in at #10.  The rest of the series fill spots in the Top 20. The newest Wimpy Kid book Hard Luck has only recently come out so didn’t have time to make into the list. It is sure to finish high in the 2014 list though.

The highest Australian book appears at #8 –  The 26-Storey Treehouse by the ever popular Andy Griffiths with illustration by the also very popular Terry Denton (though maybe not so popular with this person)

      Hi Susan, thanks for checking out the list. The kids certainly love Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The comic/graphic novel versions of the Geronimo Stilton books were also some of our most popular comics.
