Shelf-Awareness.com just posted the post popular books list from the 2016 New York Public Library System.

There are 92 New York Public Libraries in the New York City area. According to the article, 25 million items (books, tapes, etc.) were circulated in 2016.

I am pleased to see that my favorite title, for personal and professional reasons, When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalinthi, M.D., was no. 1 in its non-fiction area. It was followed by high readership of Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters by Atul Gawande. M.D.  (See my comments in previous blog about best-seller book lists for 2016). Both books are about quality of life at the end-of-life.

Here is the NY Public Library list…
