463rd Chart position claimed by Daisy Meadows’ most loaned title

dominance shows. In fact, the lending charts are usually depend- ably made up of brand authors and series titles, with débuts a rare occurrence. Yet 2021’s lockdown-induced


fiction renaissance has clearly had an effect on the LibScan rankings as well as the BookScan ones. Not only did Osman’s début top the chart, but Delia Owens’ first novel, Where the Crawdads Sing, scored fifth and Douglas Stuart’s Booker- winning Shuggie Bain was the 20th most lent title. But series titles still


held sway, particu- larly crime series. Jack Reacher charted both second, courtesy of The Sentinel, and 12th (Blue Moon), with Robert Galbraith’s fourth outing for private detective Cormoran Strike hitting third place, in Troubled Blood. Ian Rankin’s Inspector Rebus hit fourth place, in A Song for the Dark Times, while

confined to crime, with Victoria Hislop’s sequel to Noughties million-copy bestseller The Island, historical romance One August Night, charting sixth. Children’s titles followed a simi- lar pattern, with Jeff Kinney’s 14th Wimpy Kid title The Deep End pipping David Walliams and Tony Ross’ standalone title Code Name Bananas to


become the most lent kids’ book of the year to date. However Walliams’ fourth title in The World’s Worst... series, The World’s Worst Parents, scored 11th place. The sheer breadth of the


Children’s library landscape can be seen in the author top 10— Rainbow Magic’s Daisy Meadows is the second most loaned author of the year, yet her highest charting title, Brianna the Bee Fairy, hit 463rd place in the lending chart. The savvily-placed Jude the Librarian Fairy was also in the author’s top five.
