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 November.
|2.||1.||Inherent Vice||4 months|
|3.||3.||Cloud Atlas||3 months|
|4.||4.||The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo||5 months|
|5. (tie)||–||The Corrections||1 month|
|5. (tie)||7.||The Skating Rink||4 months|
|7. (tie)||5.||Asterios Polyp||3 months|
|7. (tie)||10.||Austerlitz||2 months|
|9.||–||The Year of the Flood||2 months|
|10.||6.||The Wild Things||2 months|
Dave Eggers bookends our list as Zeitoun moves into the top spot and The Wild Things lands at number 10. Jonathan Franzen’s 2001 novel The Corrections hits our list two months after a panel of writers, editors and critics assembled by The Millions named it the Best of the Millennium (So Far). The book joins Cloud Atlas and Austerlitz, which both figured prominently in the series as well. Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood has re-entered the list after falling off last month. And dropping from the list are Felonious Jazz by Bryan Gilmer and Imperial by William T. Vollmann.
