Goodreads hits 5 million books

Posted by Otis Chandler on August 29, 2007
We hit two major milestones this week - 5 million books added, and 300,000 members! The 5 millionth book was If on a Winter's Night a Traveler, and was added by Jessica, who gave it 5 stars. The five million books includes 398,233 books that people have marked as 'to-read', as well as 128,187 books people are currently- reading.

The most commonly added book is The Catcher in the Rye, which has been added by 27,360 people. To Kill a Mockingbird is a close second at 26,128. And of course, if you group the Harry Potter series together you get a whopping 158,973 people! The newly released Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows jumped to top of the 'currently-reading' list practically overnight, with 1,240 people already reading it.
