Kate Larson, Book Club Coordinator
The results are in! These titles appeared most on the annual reading lists of book clubs we surveyed. Hundreds of titles were listed only once, proving the diversity and literary acumen of our Book Passage registered book clubs. Many of the books that made it to the Top Ten were listed on many national best-seller lists. But there were also best-sellers that didn’t make it on to the lists of any book club. What does that show? We think our book club members were looking for quality and not hype. Book Passage works with more than 200 registered book clubs. These clubs average around 8 to 10 members each, and they read about 10 to 11 books a year. Add up the numbers, and you see that Book Passage customers are reading a lot of high-quality books!
