Last week we reported about the shift in the taste of the British library goers: The Romance titles are not the most popular books anymore and their spot has been occupied by crime fictions. It might seem odd for British readers who have very rich crime fiction literature to go for American authors but it seems that's the case: New figures show that authors such as James Patterson have committed a crime against passion by pushing period tales of love out of the top 10 which they once ruled.
The league of most-borrowed titles compiled by Public Lending Right (PLR) gives a snapshot of changing tastes. Topped by Dan Brown's thriller The Lost Symbol, the rest of the top 10 is made up entirely of crime titles, with Patterson having a hand in five of the books.
Patterson was also the most borrowed author from UK libraries for the fifth year running, according to PLR figures for 2010/11. His books were responsible for more than two million loans nationally between them, and they accounted for 17 of the top 100 most borrowed titles.
Like Books By James Patterson?
He has written a lot of books and I personally think a blog or magazine can be launched on the basis of the work done by this author. Nevertheless here are some of the titles by this author (Click on the Images)
