Books by State™ – 2020

See what books ThriftBooks customers read the most

For the fifth time, it's time to see what your state was reading this year! In 2020 people were reading more, and it shows in the broad range of titles being read across the US, with nonfiction and fiction seeing an almost even split. Two notable firsts of this list are a cookbook and a textbook. We know where we’re going for dinner and our chemistry lessons!

Take a look at last year's map to see how they compare, or go even further with the lists for 2018, 2017, and 2016 for a more comprehensive look at how reading has changed. One series has made the list all five years, can you guess which?
