Rakuten OverDrive, a platform for digital books (used by more than 43,000 libraries and schools worldwide), has released a list of its most-borrowed ebooks and audiobooks in 2019. There are no real surprises on the list, besides maybe the fact that so many people want to listen to a woman tell them to wash their faces. Hey, at least it was free?

  2. Michelle Obama, Becoming
  3. Tara Westover, Educated
  4. Liane Moriarty, Nine Perfect Strangers
  5. Celeste Ng, Little Fires Everywhere
