10 million books read on Goodreads!

Posted by Jessica on January 3, 2008
If you’ve been devouring books lately, you are not alone. With now more than 700,000 members (and growing every day), Goodreads recently passed the 10 million mark -- combined total for books marked as read, to-read (1,018,298), and currently-reading (260,551). The 10 millionth review was written by Taryn, who gave 4 stars to Ines of My Soul: A Novel, by Isabel Allende.

Not surprisingly, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) reigns supreme as the most commonly rated book (42,162 people), but Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia has leapt up the charts, now with 10,005 people.

Classic favorites continue to rule our most popular lists, such as Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends (23,614 people) and Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita (16,848 people). Also, J.K. Rowling better watch her back, because Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials Trilogy is gaining steadily on our fantasy shelves with a total of 21,304 books rated.

Will 2008 trump 2007? Keep reading!
