Most Popular Titles of the Year...Wildcat Favorites

The top 10 today will focus on the Wildcat Favorite section.  To read more about the Wildcat Favorites, go to this post.  As these are the most popular books in the Media Center, they have a higher number of checkouts than books in other sections.

And with a grand total of 90 checkouts was Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney.

I wasn't really surprised to see the DOAWK in the top ten, but I thought more of the I Survived books would be there, too, because they always seem to be checked out. Maybe those books just aren't getting returned on time.  It's something to keep an eye on.

What are the most popular books in your media center?
