The Most Popular Books by Country and State
Arts.Mic used Goodreads’ ratings for the most popular books in each U.S. State, and then put the result into a map. Now they have done the same for European countries. Can you guess which book is most popular in England? Hint: it stars a boy wizard.
The results for the United States’ book map were surprising: yes, To Kill a Mockingbird was very popular, but lesser known books like Dan Brown’s Digital Fortress have captured Maryland’s heart. Stephen King’s The Stand makes the most appearances on the U.S. Books Map (5) and Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is the most popular book in 2 states.
