Bestseller and most completed – not the same!

Here’s an interesting article from The Guardian published 10 December 2014 - Ebooks can tell which novels you didn’t finish.

Kobo Britain’s statistics have revealed that Britons were most likely to finish a romance novel, with 62% completion, followed by crime and thrillers (61%) and fantasy (60%). Italians were also most engaged by romance (74% completion), while the French preferred mysteries, with 70% completion.

What fun to compare the bestsellers and the most completed!

Kobo is also quoted as saying also said that thriller writer James Patterson “was the most completed author in the UK for his entire portfolio of books”.


The good news is that there are many e-books and e-audiobooks by James Patterson available for you to borrow from our Overdrive service for your holiday reading.  Be sure to complete them.
