Boston (Mass.) Transcript

Through the lists in The Bookman and elsewhere it is comparatively easy to keep track of the popularity of current fiction, as well as of some of the non-fiction and juvenile books. The St. Louis Public Library publishes this year, as it did last year, a list showing the preferences of its readers in non-fiction as represented by the loan of books at the central building. It will be noticed, as in the list of last year, that Mrs. Eddy's book leads all the rest with triumphant ease, the number of copies of Science and Health in the library being fifty-eight, number of times issued, two thousand one hundred and thirty-five. "Innocents Abroad" by Mark Twain, with fifteen copies, was issued fifteen hundred and seventy-six times.
