  1. I took a few minutes and visited the amazon pages for most of the books on the ebook list. These are books you also see on best seller lists and the front page of book sites. What impressed me is how popular misery porn is. Other than Asians, Grisham and Michelle Obama, the books are about women in peril and suffering. Why is that?

    • One might suspect Pandemic influences, which have ballooned audio and ebook sales, but Libby has been running since 2017, so it would take a pretty large COVID bulge to impact the ranking of that many books.
