Best-selling books of the last 15 years

I absolutely love lists! S. Krishna posted about USA TODAY’S top 150 best-selling books of the last 15 years, so I had to go through them and figure out how many I’ve read — of course! I’ve bolded everything I’ve checked out. That would be 33. Thirty three out of 150? I guess that’s all right. Check out the original article here!

I’m surprised to see so many “recent” books on the list: The Shack, The Last Lecture, Breaking Dawn, Eldest . . . not that they’re not all worthy of making the best-selling list! Not too many surprises on there, especially with Harry Potter dominating most of the top positions. Many of the titles are weight/nutrition guides, too, which makes sense. Working at the bookstore, I would only go a few hours without someone asking me for a weight loss guide . . . and definitely had enough of them.

And now, without further ado:
