What People are Reading
Know Neighborhoods by Their Book Buying [Sabrina Tavernise, NYT, 6/28/04] A glimpse into what the big chain bookstores - which together sell one-fifth of books in Manhattan - are selling, depending on the neighborhood.
I wonder if library websites would want to do something similar - a periodic list of a library system's most popular books, based on checkout numbers. Perhaps one could somehow set up the list as an RSS feed. I know that there's a feed for NYT's most emailed articles, which I find can lead to interesting reads.
