Public Lending Right loans - 2010/2011

So my Public Lending Right statement for the year July 2010 to June 2011 arrived today, informing me how many people have borrowed my books from libraries in that time. For each loan I earn a few pence - a mount which is steadily decreasing due to government cuts.

For those of you who may be interested, here's the list of my top ten most borrowed books for July 2010 - June 2011 (with last year's placing in brackets):

1. (1) The Horror of Howling Hill (Mar 08)
2. (4) Crisis on Coruscant (Jan 10)
3. (-) Night of the Necromancer (Apr 10)
4. (-) Blood Royal (Jun 10)
5. (6) Stormslayer (Sep 09)
6. (3) Howl of the Werewolf (Sep 07)
7. (2) The Official Doctor Who Annual 2010 (Aug 09)
8. (10) Bloodbones (Sep 06)
9. (6) Curse of the Mummy (Apr 07)
10. (-) Bloodbones (Sep 06)*

my most borrowed book for the third year running!

* In case you're wondering, Bloodbones appears twice on the list because it is registered as two different editions.
