Most Popular Books of 2013

I started putting together a "best books" display this morning based on all of the fun best book lists, when I got sidetracked by wanting to add in my library's most popular books.  Well, the display took a turn and ended up being just our most popular circing children's books of 2013.

To make it look nicer, I was able to pull multiple copies of many of the books and stack them.  When I stack my books, I like to turn the ones lying flat into a spiral to add interest (similar to what you would do with party napkins).  To add a guessing element to the display, listed the titles in order on the back of my display sign.  This way customers can guess if their favorite titles are on the list, then check to see if they were right.  It also helps staff pull more titles to add to the display.

If you are wondering what our most popular children's titles of 2013 have been, here is the list in order:
  1. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel
  2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever
  3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
  4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
  5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
  6. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Greg Heffley's Journal
  7. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth
  8. The Lightning Thief
