Joanna Loves Reading (joannalovesreading) | 1109 comments Tally: through message 62

1. The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1) by Philip Pullman The Golden Compass — 10

2. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho The Alchemist — 16 -- winner with the most votes

3. Hidden Figures The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race — 10

4. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk Fight Club — 12

5. A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R.R. Martin A Game of Thrones — 7

*I think I got off on my count on Fight Club. I had it at 15 and now find 12. I re-counted when the two leaders were so close to be sure, but we have a clear winner in The Alchemist.

Allegra | 248 comments 2. The Alchemist It's been on my list for a while. It's old enough that the library should have copies on hand. And, at fewer than 200 pages, there's time to fit it in with everything else I've already lined up.
