The Millions Top Ten: September 2010

By posted at 11:08 am on October 1, 2010 2

We spend plenty of time here on The Millions telling all of you what we’ve been reading, but we are also quite interested in hearing about what you’ve been reading. By looking at our Amazon stats, we can see what books Millions readers have been buying, and we decided it would be fun to use those stats to find out what books have been most popular with our readers in recent months. Below you’ll find our Millions Top Ten list for September.

Title On List
1. 1. cover Freedom 2 months
2. 2. cover The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet 4 months
3. 3. cover The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest 4 months
4. 5. cover Tinkers 5 months
5. 4. cover The Passage 3 months
6. (tie) 10. cover A Visit from the Goon Squad 2 months
6. (tie) 6. cover Faithful Place 3 months
8. 8. (tie) cover Out of Sheer Rage: Wrestling With D.H. Lawrence 4 months
9. 8. (tie) cover Super Sad True Love Story 2 months
10. cover Room 1 month

Summer favorites stayed firmly ensconsed on our list in September, but Emma Donoghue’s Booker shortlisted Room managed to debut on the list in the tenth spot. Edan recently offered up a compelling review of the book in our pages. Meanwhile, the top three spots on our list remain unchanged from the prior month, with Freedom by Jonathan Franzen still in the top spot. Garth’s review of the book was published here in August. Graduating to our Hall of Fame this month was Michael Lewis’ The Big Short. Garth offered up a a look at the book and n+1’s entry into the financial meltdown post-mortem genre earlier this week. Near Misses: The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Gone-Away World, War and Peace, Things We Didn’t See Coming, The Imperfectionists. See Also: Last month’s list

    I’m taking all the credit for getting Room on the list. (Not really.)

    The Millions readers have good taste (or at least taste similar to mine, I have read everything except the Stieg Larsson).
