This is a study that gives valuable information on the appetite of readers in France. “Livres Hebdo” and the Ministry of Culture publish their latest list of the most borrowed books in libraries. Of the 25 most requested authors, only one writes fictions for adults: Françoise Bourdin, specialist in historical novels. The other most borrowed books are intended for young people: “Max and Lili”, “Les P’tits docs”, “Tom Tom et Nana” or “The legendaries”. .
