  • Book Cover
Lists! Books! Christmas! New Year's! It's the confluence of a bunch of things that go into making #content in that lovely little sliver of the calendar between Dec. 25 and Jan. 2. when nothing much else happens.

This edition is brought to you by the Cuyahoga County Public Library, which helpfully included its 10 most-borrowed titles of the year in a newsletter today. Enjoy as you scoff at/revel in/fondly remember/get hearty reinforcements therein/generally consume what Northeast Ohioans were checking out of the library system most often in 2018.
