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
