Harry Potter the most-borrowed book in UK
The Telegraph is reporting today that Harry Potter was borrowed 109,000 times last year, making it the most borrowed book:
The Government-funded Public Lending Right – which pays authors for books taken out in public libraries – said choices had been influenced by Richard and Judy, the husband and wife TV presenters. Five of the books named in the top 10 had been featured in their Book Club slot as part of their chat show.
The PLR, which tracked figures between July 2007 and June 2008, also said books for children and young adults represented a third of loans nationally.
