AbeBooks’ 100 Most Searched-For Books of the Past Year

Collectible book dealer AbeBooks has issued its list of the Top 100 Most Searched-For Books of 2014. You won’t be surprised to see multiple Stephen King titles among the ranks, and some of the other names in demand are equally predictable, but a few are real head-scratchers.

The King books are —

4. The Body by Stephen King

5. Rage by Richard Bachman (Stephen King)

6. The Colorado Kid by Stephen King

22. My Pretty Pony by Stephen King

And the other genre names on the list are —

11. Dark Carnival by Ray Bradbury

26. Murmurs of Earth by Carl Sagan

27. Ilsa by Madeleine L’Engle (a non-fantasy work)

42. Cyborg by Martin Caidin

92. Halloween by Curtis Richards

A non-genre, nonfiction work ranked #1 overall,  On the Psychology of Military Incompetence by Norman F. Dixon.

  1. Many years back–late 1960’s, I would browse though the ABA want lists, and there were multiple requests for THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. Many of them. Still, no one has tried to gather up Harry’s Bates more interesting short novels and stories to make a collection. I am guessing the title is the property of the movie studio.
