What you read last year: Chicago's most circulated library books of 2009
Chicagoans love to read. We love books, real ones. So much so that we made 2009 a second record-setting year for circulation with 9.2 million items checked out in the first 11 months of the year, according to Chicago Public Library spokeswoman Ruth Lednicer.
So what are we reading? You may be surprised to find out. The top 12 circulated books of 2009 included comics, novels about teenage vampires and growing up Latina. You go, bookworms.
