The end of the financial year brings about what we call in council Reporting Season. This is where we review our activities over the previous twelve months. One of the thing we libraries like to look at is what have our customers been reading. So presented here is our top twenty fiction titles for the last twelve months. Fifty Shades of Grey yet again tops out the list; not doubt the recent movie adaptation has renewed interest in the book.
