I have heard of most popular book or best-seller book but never before heard of the “most stolen book”.
The Frankfurt Book Fair has an indicator to help publishers gauge public interest in the new offerings presented at the annual exhibition — the unofficial “most stolen book” index.
Bild am Sonntag and Germany’s ZDF television have come up with lists of titles most stolen from 15 leading German publishers’ stands set up in the Frankfurt trade fair grounds.(Reuters)
Claudia Hanssen of the Goldmann Verlag publishing house told Bild am Sonntag newspaper, which published a list of the 10 most stolen German-language books this year that the most-stolen books are usually the best-sellers later on. Most-stolen ones are usually most-popular too.
Yea, we have another rating to help in choosing which book to go for!
