Best of Romance for 2010

New City's paperback romances are extremely popular.  Every single title on our shelves goes out at least once a month on average-- there are no "dusty" books here!  In order to keep on top of the collection, I run statistical reports regularly to learn what our library's Romance aficionados are reading.  (Don't worry, your secret Victoria Dahl addiction is safe-- all the numbers I see are in aggregate.)  I analyze which subgenres are the most popular, and which authors and series are the most-read.  Then I combine that information with journal reviews and news from genre blogs to bring the titles you'll want to read to our shelves.  For my first Romance blog entry of the new year, I thought I'd shed a bit of light on what's to come by giving you a look back... at our most popular titles of 2010!

Be Amazed in 2011

Did you make any New Year Resolutions for 2011?  It seems the focus is on “Best of…” lists rather than on making resolutions for the coming year.  Maybe it’s because we know what happens even to the best of intentions come February.  The Circulation Department is going to take up the challenge.  We’ve always tried to deliver the kind of service you expect.  Our resolution for 2011 is to step it up a notch and exceed your expectations.  Let us know when we do something right, but just as important we need to know when we fall short.  It is our best learning tool.
