The 35 Most Popular Book Categories on AALBC

Recommended Posts

Here are the most popular book categories on the AALBC website.  If you follow the links you will be sent to a page where the book in each category is listed.  The first list has over 800 books in it.

 

There are currently 288 books in the “Poetry / American / General category.  I found this personally interesting that this category of books is in the top 10, because poetry does not sell as well as it did which I launched the site over 20 years ago. Despite that it is obvious my focus on the genre has not wavered.  A website can afford to do this, a physical bookstore can not because it is much wiser to dedicate floor space to products that are moving 🙂

Thanks @Mel Hopkins, right now I have it on the Books Main Page: https://aalbc.com/books/ and it is on the category's page as well. For example you will see it on the Romance / Fantasy Category.  I even created collages of books in each of the categories.  This was done just to help me on social media sharing, nt I think they are just cool to look at 🙂
