Happy 5th Birthday, Book Riot: Our 10 Most Popular Posts

That’s right, guys and dolls, today is Book Riot’s 5th birthday! We’ve come a long way since the banana candle (still my favorite post probably), from a dozen contributors making it up as we went to 160 writers, over a dozen newsletters, 12 full-time employees, 4 podcasts, a reader convention, a store, and tons more. To celebrate, a quick look back at the 10 most popular posts of the site’s history:

  1. 16 Things Calvin and Hobbes Said Better Than Anyone Else
  2. Louis C.K. Reading Catcher in the Rye (Can Someone Please Make This Happen?)
  3. America’s Most Beautiful Public Library
  4. My Little Free Library Was Violated!
  5. 10 Kick-Ass Secret Passage Bookshelves
  6. The Last Line of The Great Gatsby: “So we beat on…”
  7. Rising to the Challenge: How the Book Internet Delivered Books to Teens
  8. What I Said When They Came for The Handmaid’s Tale
  9. The Myers-Briggs Types of 202 Fictional Characters
