A New York moment:
Does your local library share its top checked-out books of the year? It’s an interesting snapshot of the culture of a place, with more flavor than any national bestseller list. We know that promoters can manipulate bestseller lists; I’m guessing library data is mostly immune from manipulation, except perhaps from a very influential book club.
