A consequence of the launch of Public Lending Renumeration this week is the start of a flow of information about what books are being borrowed by irish readers. Details have been available from UK Libraries for some years but with the arrival of PLR.ie we get some access to Irish Library statistics.
So who was most borrowed author? – Binchy? Barry? Keyes? JK Rowling?
Nope it was Francesca Simon and author Tony Ross for their Horrid Henry creations- it certainly surprised me!
Most borrowed book was not so creative – The Official Driver Theory Test
