Published on 19 December 2022

The people have spoken! Here's our most borrow books for the year. 

2022 was a busy year for our borrowers, with some titles taking out the top spot for the second year running (we're looking at you Anh Do) as well as some long time favourites reappearing after years off the charts. We loved seeing local authors make the list (hi Paul Kennedy!) and although there was no surprises with crime/thrillers taking out the top spots for fiction, we were quietly thrilled to see love on the list for non-fiction borrows. Whether they're new releases or classics, you are sure to find something to add to your to-be-read pile below.
