Top Books in my CHS Library for the past school year

Here is a list of the books that circulated the most this past school year.  I always find these sorts of lists interesting and like to compare them to other libraries.  Some of these results seem a bit skewed to me, because of course we have more copies of some of the books than others and there are other factors involved I’m sure.  However, here is the list and maybe some brief explanations if I feel them necessary:
