Untitled design - feb 

The book map shows the covers of the top ten most popular books in the libraries of Yerevan and the regions of Armenia in February 2023. February is a special month for all Armenian poets. And the works of Hovhannes Tumanyan could be distributed to all ten regions and neighborhoods of Yerevan, because in February, on the birthday of the great poet, every home needs a book. Three books of the popular contemporary author, Ashot Agababyan, were included in the February lists. The Trap, The Only One and The Shelter. The novel Menak was read more than 60 times in libraries participating in the mapping program. In addition, in February Agababyan presented his new novel Live And Let Others Live, so in upcoming months his name will probably remain on the top ten.

The triumph of Agatha Christie's books continues. Nine of her detective novels appeared on the lists. Three novels by Agatha Christie appeared on the book map of Armenia, as they were included in the top ten of district libraries of Yerevan, Lori, and Shirak regions. The Morning of Armenia by Khachatur Abovyan, Armenian Sketches by Vardges Petrosyan and The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides were included in the top ten of the Aragatsotn Regional Library. The children's novel Anne of Green Gables by the Canadian writer Lucy Montgomery is at the top in Ararat Regional Library, while in Armavir preference is given to the novels The Green Mile by Stephen King and Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.   

Erich Maria Remarque’s Haven Has No Favorites, Yerevan-Paris — Not an Ordinary Flight by Ani Mirzoyan, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini are in special demand at libraries. The Godfather by Mario Puzo, The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides and Agapi by Hovsep Vardanyan were in the top sales of bookstores. Salty Tea and Pride by Syun Sevada, Don't Give Me Peonies, Lost Moments, and After Love by Gohar Navasardyan are among the ten best contemporary Armenian authors. In total, 71 books by 54 authors (of which 22 are Armenian) are included in the top-lists. The majority of books in the top-lists are books published in the last five years.
