Fiction, Schmiction. How About Some Reality?

2 min read

Some readers crave fiction. But a growing number of readers are hungry for nonfiction. In fact, a recent analysis of circulation data from libraries around the country revealed phenomenal growth of circulating nonfiction over the last 20 years. Why? Well, here are two possible reasons: 

  • Narrative nonfiction appeals to many reading/book discussion groups.
  • Many male readers frequently choose circulating nonfiction titles.

Libraries can keep their collection appealing to reading groups and male readers by offering a dynamic collection filled with high-interest works.

Thorndike Press offers several standing order plans for nonfiction, bringing libraries fresh titles every month in a large print format all library patrons can enjoy. These include:

  • Narrative and Popular Nonfiction, offering readers the very best popular and narrative nonfiction titles, including many #1 New York Times bestsellers and award winners.
  • Biographies and Memoirs, offering high-interest, bestselling, and popular titles that offer insight into fascinating lives and experiences.
  • And then there are Lifestyle titles, providing information ranging from how-to, financial advice, health issues, personal growth, and other high-interest topics focused on daily living.
