most borrowed authors in the uk archive

PLR's archive listings of most borrowed authors in UK public libraries can be found here.

The top 20 listings are broken down into Adult and Children's categories. The top 100/250/400 listings are a combination of both categories.

(These lists include authors who are registered with PLR as well as others who are dead or otherwise ineligible for remuneration under the PLR Scheme. Illustrators of books which have a separate writer have not been included.)
